I was part of a discussion where someone said Indianapolis has more in common with Minneapolis than Louisville. Just because one is part of the Midwest and the other is part of the South doesn't really define their characteristics. Louisville has a lot of Midwest characteristics, don't you think? Indianapolis and Louisville have a lot in common because of their location and proximity to each other. I didn't realize there was a major wall that divided the two states of Indiana and Kentucky and there were no attributes between the two. Think of the sporting culture, food, and overall culture of Indianapolis and Louisville versus Indianapolis and Minneapolis.

What city do you think Indianapolis is more like? Louisville or Minneapolis?

Neither. It's more like Columbus, Ohio.

I've never been to Minneapolis, but I've spent countless hours in both Indy and Louisville. I would venture to guess that Indy would have far more in common with Louisville than Minneapolis given that Louisville is more comparable in size and is only 100 miles away. Minneapolis is quite a bit bigger than Indy and Louisville, and is also much more corporate. I'm sure it feels like a much much larger city, because it is.

Indy and Louisville have a lot in common.

Columbus wasn't part of the discussion. Louisville and Minneapolis were, that's why they were asked about.

Minneapolis and Loisville have more in common.
Old livly neighbouhoods, one has the Ohio river, the other the Mississipi.
But Minneapolis is a whole lot bigger than both. Don't know why tough, nasty winters up there......

I assumed you could read, at least your spelling was correct. Never said you had to conform, I asked a question, and Columbus wasn't part of it, guess it's just as simple as that. I was asking between the other two cities. At least indy18 "conformed" a bit.

Indianapolis doesn't have lively neighborhoods?

I think the answer you're looking for is neither. Here are two things you can compare. Indianapolis is like Minneapolis for two reasons. They both end in apolis and they both have a lot of skywalks downtown. Indianapolis is like Louisville in the sense that....I really don't know. They're closer together geographically and population wise? Honestly, I don't know a ton about either city, but I feel like Indianapolis feels a good amount larger than Louisville and a lot smaller Minneapolis.
