What we're about

Welcome to the Indianapolis New & NOT NEW In Town Meetup group.

If you are new to the area, NOT New to the area or simply want to enlarge your circle of friends, we are a great way to meet others in a non-threatening atmosphere.

We are a group focused on learning and sharing about ALL areas (and Surrounding areas) of Indy with GREAT events. You can be New or (Not New) just wanting to do more things in Indy.

We do different events around Indianapolis and the surrounding areas.! We have dinners, go to movies, art events, clubs, theatres, fairs, festivals, sporting events, concerts (large and small), dancing, canoe and water events, hiking and the list goes on...

• Everyone is welcome to join (Single, Married, Partnered, Etc…) as we are an ALL AGES group (Must be 21).


• Any “Hound Dog” or “meat market” type behavior, or any inappropriate communication is not tolerated. Solicitation of any kind is also prohibited. We are all here to have a GREAT TIME with other people who just happen to be in Indy too.

• Photo: For membership we REQUIRE a photo. It should be a reasonably recent of you, facially (FULLY) visible photo, WITHOUT sunglasses. You should be the only person(s) in the photo or it should at least be obvious as to which person(s) you are and we prefer it to be a normal sized (non-thumbnail pic).

• Name: We also REQUIRE an actual first name as your screen name or how you want to be addressed in person. You can use a nickname if you desire.

• Families: We do have people who wish to host an event open to families. That is fine if ALL members can attend and a Public location. Example: Going to the zoo would need to be all ages.

• This Meetup is Member Driven as ANY member may post an event. If there is an event you are interested in that you have not seen posted, please Post a Draft of the event you can host. We are not a FREE advertising space as a member must HOST the event and be with the members.

• Nothing to be nervous about… come to an event and see how much FUN you can have in Indianapolis! Why? Because we are just a group of people who may become friends learning together about Indy having FUN in Indy.

If you have a question, contact the Organizational team.

Going around different parts around town with a limit of 10 people. Maybe suggest one that involves a winery, a craft brewery, a park, a hike, a festival or you decide???

HEY.... Take a HIKE! Pick a day, Place... and LETS GO!
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

We're looking for a group who enjoys the outdoors, meeting new people, and just having fun. Our aim is to explore the great hiking spots around Indy and to offer and provide an opportunity to socialize with others who have a passion for hiking. Hikers of all levels are welcome to join. With us, you'll burn a few calories and see some great sights to boot. Hopefully post the events early so that people can determine if a particular weekend will work for them. KNOW YOUR LIMITS! The hikes we do are usually either moderate or rugged, depending on the park. The group is mainly for people who exercise on a regular basis or can handle the demands of the day's hike. It's important that people realize what their limits are and not attend a challenging hike they may not be ready for. Please be sure to note the hike descriptions and determine whether or not you'll be able to enjoy the event. None of us want anyone to end up injured or unable to finish a hike. We also would like to hike all year-round, so weather conditions can also be a factor, and although we avoid hiking in extreme temperatures (in the teens or in the nineties), please be aware of any weather conditions that may have an effect on your ability to hike. TYPES OF HIKES Rugged hikes consist of lengthy events across challenging terrain, which can mean rocky streambeds and steep hills. These hikes wouldn't be recommended for beginners or those who are still getting into shape. Our rugged events are often our best hikes but are definitely a workout. Moderate hikes are not as physically challenging as the rugged ones and take place on less hilly terrain. These hikes contain a few hills that will get your heart rate up or else the length of the hike will be the real challenge. These would require a decent level of fitness. Easy hikes aren't frequently on our schedules, but that may be a matter of opinion. Any hike in this category would consist of a flat terrain and nothing strenuous. DOGS Dogs are welcome on our hikes, as long as he or she gets along with other pooches and a large group of people. Dogs will be need to be kept on leashes. CANCELLATIONS/POSTPONEMENTS If a hike is called off due to inclement weather or some other problem, an e-mail will be sent out as early as possible letting everyone know and an update will be made to the event page. Hikes are usually postponed to another weekend to avoid bad weather or any other setback. PHOTOS YES!! We have some great photographers in the groups and taking pictures is a big part of our events. Everyone is welcome to upload their photos to the site. If you have any questions at all about doing this, please feel free to contact the Co-Organizers.

Foodie.... It's NOT a dance... You pick the Place and Date

A person that spends a keen amount of attention and energy on knowing the ingredients of food, the proper preparation of food, and finds great enjoyment in top-notch ingredients and exemplary preparation. A foodie is not necessarily a food snob, only enjoying delicacies and/or food items difficult to obtain and/or expensive foods; though, that is a variety of foodie. Because he was a foodie, he liked to collect menus from restaurants which prepared food he enjoyed. So you PICK the Place and Date anywhere around town... would like to hopefully see this has a regular event. Please contact your Co-Organizers with a "Suggested" event.
