"Indiana State Fair Location- not somewhere to be alone at night."
While East 38th Street houses the Indiana State Fair, and has seen the same recent revival attempts as the rest of the city, the surrounding area is still dilapidated and rough. While there is certainly no danger while traveling during the day, or during large events, such as the flea-market, Boat and R.V. Show, and other events on the grounds of the fair, it is not an area to be stuck alone at night. Make sure you lock your windows and doors, and just exercise common sense when dealing with locals. When stopped at stop lights, it is not unusual to have someone tap on your window, begging for money or attempting to sell peanuts, holy water, or other fare. Please don't be scared of our city by this area, but don't go driving down the street, making it obvious that you are from out of town and possibly flush with cash. The housing on the street ranges from abandoned, crime-ridden apartment homes to beautiful, newly-restored condos (as you get closer to downtown), but the traffic can be perilous. The speed limit varies, but be prepared to go a bit faster to keep up with traffic, especially past Fall Creek and heading into downtown.
