Carmel, Indiana, continues to add more great things for visitors to see and experience in 2019, and one of those additions is Midtown Plaza, which is fast becoming one of the most exciting places to hang out. This new, vibrant revitalization of Carmel’s old industrial area – located in the heart of a thriving center of entertainment, urban-style living and commerce – features a sweet menu of free amenities. Monon Boulevard and Midtown Plaza both serve as an interactive play area for kids of all ages, featuring a spray plaza, public art, ping-pong tables, a pool table and big screen entertainment.

Meanwhile, Midtown is also home to some great places to eat and drink, including Sun King Spirits where they have an on-site distillery and multiple dining options in their food hall. The new Fork + Ale House includes its own brewery and a full menu. Both have outdoor patio seating and overlook the new Midtown Plaza.

There is plenty of free parking and once you arrive, you are just a short walk north to the beautiful Arts & Design District with more than 200 businesses and a variety of annual festivals. Head south and you’ll wind up at City Center, which is home The Palladium and Center for the Performing Arts and more shops and restaurants, the newest of which is the Cake Bake shop opening in July.
