If you’ve been any where downtown Indianapolis in the past few days, you know it’s quickly turning into Super Bowl Central. With signs going up on buildings all over town (see the frequently updated photo gallery on our Facebook page), the fact that the Super Bowl will be here in just 11 days is quickly becoming real.
If you can’t afford tickets to the game, there are still plenty of free or inexpensive things to do downtown to get a real feel for Super Bowl XLVI. One of the best (and FREE) things to do is to check out the Super Bowl Village in downtown Indianapolis on Georgia Street.
The city has converted the three-block stretch of Georgia Street from Banker’s Life Fieldhouse (where the NBA Indiana Pacers play) and the Indiana Convention Center into a pedestrian mall complete with food and drink tents, heaters, two music stages and other activities like the ESPN Broadcast Studio, Tailgate Town, Ice Sculptures, the country’s tallest and longest Zipline (only $10!) and more.
Here’s a screenshot from the Super Bowl XLVI Guide app that shows what Georgia Street will look like starting on Friday, January 27th.
The Super Bowl Village is FREE and is open for 10 days, from Friday, January 27th through Super Bowl Sunday, February 5th. Click here and here for ALL the details about the events going on in the Super Bowl Village.
