Indianapolis has numerous cultural attractions including museums, historical neighborhoods, festivals, and theater groups. It has an economy that is doing great and yet still has a great cost of living.

Maybe the people of Indy are keeping it a secret so it stays low COL
Ok, but this is a sliding scale. You've said nothing about Indy relative to other cities.

Three of them, Minneapolis, New Orleans and Honolulu are below half a million.
True, but those of us in the Twin Cities know that when people not from around here talk about "Minneapolis", they are talking about St Paul, too. Combined pop of both cities is ~700k.

That's how I felt too, based on my few short forays into "Naptown" But after seeing it voted so highly, I just may have to give Indy another look!

The other "polis" city, Minnea(polis), is a nice city to visit during some of the year. Seattle and Portland have a similar issue.
Can't speak for Seattle and Portland, but most tourists come to "Minneapolis" only during "some of the year". (Guess which time of the year that is? )
