Nickel Plate District Amphitheater
6 Municipal Drive
Not much of a nature person? I totally get it, sometimes the bugs and the critters aren’t for everyone. If that’s the case, check out the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater! This is for those who are going for more of a city vibe on their Instagram aesthetic. The blue and green panels make for a fun photo, and there are still surrounding trees if you want that hint of fall in the background.
Pro Tip: snap a photo being the “I” in Fishers on the back of the NPD AMP pavilion.
