Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “It’s not the destination, it’s the journey.” We say… Why can’t it be both! Fishers, Indiana is a fantastic destination – and one in which you can start, continue, and accelerate your journey of exploration, discovery, learning, growth, and fun.

5 Reasons Fishers Is a Destination

Thinking of visiting? Relocating? Starting a business? Launching the next chapter in your life? You’ve come to the right place. This is why Fishers is the destination for you:

  1. Hub & Spoke

What is Hub & Spoke? It’s what you need. The innovative 94,000 square foot master-planned mixed-use development offers a Design Center with retail showrooms with everything – and we mean everything you need for a home build/improvement project – sleek coworking space, and state-of-the-art Makerspace and the Hub & Spoke Institute (a project- and work-based learning center). The facility is tailor-made for makers of all ages, ability levels, and interests who want to pursue their passions, hone their skills, and keep learning alive.

Fishers is focused on the future. In a far-reaching partnership, the city and Hub & Spoke provide hands-on, experiential learning. The community is the classroom – and the future starts now.

  1. High Frequency Arts

German artist Berthold Brecht wrote, “Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.” Art has power; art is transformative; it can tell you more about a person, a business, an organization… and a city… than most anything else. High Frequency Arts, a certified woman-owned business and ardent supporter of local and emergent artists, helps transform spaces – from offices and healthcare to schools and hospitality – and create customized portfolios of artwork that fully align with the client’s vision, project goals, and budget.

High Frequency Arts is shaping the world, one room, one business, one home, one space, at a time. They are also the official guru of all things artistic at Hub & Spoke – so you can thank owner Jill Lehman and her team for the stunning works on display there.

  1. Nickel Plate District

Keep Fishers fresh, ya’ll. The Nickel Plate District is bustling, vibrant, and always interesting. Located in Downtown Fishers, the city has strived to make this a destination in and of itself. Walk, run, or bike the new Nickel Plate Trail. Stop at local shops and stores like Twigs and Tea, The Gypsy Nest Boutique, and Roman & Leo. Take in concerts featuring local acts and national musicians during the summer months. View public art. Eat all the foods! (More on this in a moment… Because we’re getting peckish.)

The Nickel Plate Trail (which is accessible from Hub & Spoke) makes traversing and exploring Fishers easier, safer – and much more fun. If you’re getting your steps in… GO! If you want to meander and explore the sights, sounds, and tastes of Fishers… GO!

  1. Always Something to Do

It’s a common refrain in many places: “There’s nothing to do!” Not so in Fishers. There is a wealth of opportunities to… well… do.

What do you feel like?

Need to move? Walk, run, or bike the Nickel Plate Trail. Visit Cyntheanne Park, a multifunction space for all ages and interests with athletic fields, playgrounds, and nature trails (hello, pickleball!). Wander around Flat Fork Creek Park, Heritage Park at White River, Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve, or Billericay Park.

Feel like soaking in the culture? Make the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater for everything from festivals to farmers’ markets your first stop. Explore the immersive experience at Conner Prairie – and stay after hours for a laidback picnic dinner (and maybe some dancing!) and great local music. Stroll Downtown and hit the galleries, shops, and museums.

Want to shop ‘til you drop? Fishers District boasts a variety of shops and boutiques. Starting with always-on-trend Blue Peppermint Boutique, you’ll also enjoy Massage Heights, The Hot Room, CycleBar, and Epic Interval Training for all your fitness needs, and – so your four-legged friend isn’t left behind – PetPeople with its quality food and treats. Fishers District is where it’s at.

  1. Breweries, Wineries, and Eateries… Oh My!

Who’s hungry?

If the answer is “ME!”… You are in luck. Fishers satisfies any appetite. From down home dishes and homemade ice cream to farm-fresh flavor and southern-inspired small plates, you can taste your way through the city. And quench your thirst along the way. This is a hub for craft breweries and wineries, including award-winning Four Day Ray Brewing, Sun King Brewery, and Harmony Winery.

You will also find the Fishers Test Kitchen. This exciting space has professionally built-out kitchens (right next to Sun King Innovation Brewery) that hosts three entrepreneurs who are seeking to make their mark on the culinary world. They’ll use the Test Kitchen for a year or go to refine their menus, experiment with flavors, and build a fan following before – hopefully – launching their own restaurant. Try the latest creations, and see why Fishers is the place to eat.
