What do you like about Indianapolis? Friendliness, low cost of living, cross between big city and small town feel, cleanliness, easy to navigate.
What do you dislike about Indianapolis?
Far from mountains and ocean, feeling left out if you didn't grow up here, "sterile" feeling in terms of the vibe.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Downtown, Broad Ripple, parks.
How expensive is it? Very reasonable when compared with other cities; might seem expensive if you compare it with a small town.
Is it safe? Mostly very safe for its size. Just like any other city, there are some unsafe areas.
How is the weather? Varies a lot -- all the extremes of the four seasons.
Additional thoughts?

What do you like about Indianapolis?

The vibrant nightlife, plethora of musuems, monuments, and cultural attractions. There is always something to do! It's also very reasonably priced here. I live in a lovely one bedroom apartment for a little under 500 a month in a nice, safe area.

What do you dislike about Indianapolis?

The city is very large in terms of square mileage, so it can take some effort to get to other parts of the city, particularly due to the lack of public transportation. Also, much of the inner-city directly surrounding downtown has deteriated in the last few years a LOT, creating much more crime in those areas then there used to be.

What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?

I love the westside, as it's where I grew up, and I love the southside, as it's where I currently live. I love downtown and the near-northside as well. It's been reborn with wonderful refurbished and new homes, along with a lot of great places to meet up with people.

How expensive is it?

It's very cheap to live and have fun here. Big city style on small town prices. :)

Is it safe?

Just like anywhere, it depends on where go. I'd stay away from the inner-city unless I'm passing through...and the eastside is pretty scary too. Otherwise, I feel safe.

How is the weather?

Typical midwest. The spring and fall are the best. Dry, comfortable temperatures. The summers aren't too bad, perhaps a little bit too humid. Winter, however, sucks. It doesn't get too crazy cold, but between December and March, it's pretty much gray skies all the time.

Additional thoughts?

Most people I know that come here from other state and cities like it. Indianapolis doesn't really have one specific identity...but instead has something for everyone to identify with.
