Visit Indy is Indianapolis' appointed team who tirelessly promote our city at all levels and we're thrilled that You Are Here Photography has officially partnered with such an awesome movement.

Visit Indy does more than go around and tell people how rad Indianapolis is, they increase tourism, boost our economy, and are avid supporters of everything local.

Here are a few mind-blowing statistics that you probably didn't know:

  • Indianapolis gets on average 22 MILLION annual visitors
  • Indianapolis visitors spends roughly $3.56 BILLION Dollars per year
  • Indianapolis visitors support almost 70,000 jobs in our hospitality industry

Wowza.

It only made sense to have a sit down with Visit Indy and talk about how we can help contribute to those numbers with our services as Google Trusted Photographers. Think about it. Google Virtual Tours are a sure way for visitors or locals who are unfamiliar, get familiar before even landing w/in our state's borderlines.

Yes, most of us who live here know about St. Elmo Steak House, but does a Canadian here on business know about St. Elmo Steak House or our other secret gems?

I think they ask Siri who then probably checks with Google.

Check out how Visit Indy integrated our Google Virtual Tours on their website.

The Shrine...ing | Indiana War Memorial's Google Virtual Tour

“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”  -G.K. Chesterton

You Are Here Photography, Indiana's #1 Photography Team for Google Business View had the pleasure of shooting a Google Tour for one of Indiana's most beloved places, the Indiana War Memorial.

Established in 1919 as the National HQ's of the American Legion and to serve as a memorial to our Nation's Veterans, this place is  jam packed with history and it's free for everyone to enjoy.

I must admit, some of the injured mannequins decked out in soldier uniforms with bloody gauze wrapped around their head was a little creepy, but it was war after all.

I believe their intent was not to glorify battle, but to remind us of the sacrifices our past and future veterans have made and will make.

Thanks for reminding me, War Memorial and the next Mr./Ms. Veteran I see, I will hold out my hand for a shake and thank them for keeping my family safe.

So, if you're searching through Nuvo trying to find something "Cool" to do, go school yourself at the Indiana War Memorial.

Have fun, learn something new, and pay some respect without having to pay any dollars.

Visit the Indiana War Memorial, now a Virtual Tour on Google.
