Do you go out much?
You say that, but if you look you can have an absolute blast in Indy. You say it's superior but I doubt you really spend much time going out. Because if you want great music? Indy has it. If you want great restuarants? Indy has them. If you want great bars? Indy has them. Arts, monuments (more than any city save for DC), after spending enough time all over the US, I've discovered how badass Indy really is. I'd rather live in a few other places sure, but the "nothing to do" is a pile of ********, a dumb stereotype that was true for many years but no longer.
If you want to party? Indy will rock your world. I know this because I've worked 6 years in the bar industry and I've partied every where. Nola, Vegas and NYC top the party here. That's it.
And before anyone brings up LA, let's be clear, LA sucks. There are about 30 other cities in California that kick LA's ***.
