Main Street in Speedway: a day’s worth of fun on just one street

There are not many streets just half a mile long that offer as much to do as Main Street in Speedway. This unique community offers the excitement and variety of a big city with the mature shade trees and friendly storefronts of a small town. And if you live at the Wilshaw Apartments, all of it is within walking distance of your front door. Here are some of our favorite choices for enjoying a day on Main Street. 


Start your day with breakfast at Charlie Browns Pancake & Steak House or walk to Founder’s Grounds Coffee Company and choose from a large selection of hot brews, cold brews, espresso, other specialty drinks, and breakfast bites. They even have some fun coffee cocktails! 


Dawson’s on Main has a lunch menu that includes soups, salads, sandwiches, and wraps that are perfect for a light meal during the workday or a leisurely weekend afternoon. Try the crab cakes! Another terrific option for lunch is the Speedway location of Big Woods. Come out for their annual race day watch party Sunday, May 1st from 1 to 3 p.m.


For dinner and entertainment, try Daredevil Brewing’s Speedway taproom, open at 4 p.m. on weekdays and at noon Friday through Sunday (closed on Mondays!). Enjoy live music during the summer, and let your dog romp in the fenced dog park next to the patio.


If you live at the Wilshaw Apartments, you have the privilege of sharing a building with Fundae’s Ice Cream and Sweets! Stop by after dinner and enjoy a frozen treat on the patio while you take in all the action of an evening on Main Street. 

For a little shopping

Main Attraction Antique Mall has been around since 2005 and offers antique furniture, jewelry, and accessories, plus rare coins, comic books, and other collectibles. And because you’re in Speedway, you can also count on finding plenty of racing memorabilia. 

Local attractions

Main Street is home to an array of attractions that are quintessentially Speedway, such as Speedway Indoor Karting. All ages can enjoy a variety of kart racing on a two-level road coarse and mini speedway. They also have a golf simulator allowing you to experience world-famous links like St. Andrews from right here in Speedway. For more racing-related entertainment, check out special events at the Dallara IndyCar Factory. You might also enjoy a visit to the Foyt Wine Vault: a combination wine bar and Foyt racing museum. 

Outdoor fun

As the weather gets warmer, you might enjoy a stroll or bicycle ride on the newest stretch of the B&O trail extension. And on Wednesday evenings, the Speedway Run Club meets at Daredevil Brewing at 6 p.m. for a group 5k fun run. 

Come home to the Wilshaw Apartments

After a day of enjoying all that Main Street has to offer, you’ll love coming home to a new luxury apartment in Speedway, just minutes from the world-famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway and a short walk to destinations for food, drinks, treats, and fun.
