“We’re about to embark on a slam dunk, out-of-this-world, extraordinary, one-for-the-eras type of year,” said Visit Indy’s Morgan Snyder during its State of Tourism event.

From the NBA All-Star Weekend, to three nights with Taylor Swift, to the once-in-a-lifetime Total Solar Eclipse, to the US Olympic Swimming Trials, the city is buzzing with excitement — and there’s never been a better time to #LoveIndy.
