Fast Company: Best Dating Spots & Activities

Before Arie Luyendyk Jr. melted hearts on The Bachelorette, the IndyCar driver honed his dating skills here. A few of his local go-to spots and activities:

Arie Luyendyk Jr., in his own words:

Biking the Monon Trail: “I love working out and being outside, so cycling along the Monon is probably one of my most favorite things to do.”

Bowling at Action Duckpin: “It’s fun, it’s on the top floor of a really old building [Fountain Square Theatre], and it has a really cool setting.” 1105 Prospect St., 686-6006.

Dinner at Mama Carolla’s: “Awesome. The layout is neat, how it used to be an old house.” 1031 E. 54th St., 259-9412.

Coffee at Lino’s: “Authentic Italian coffee, in a really cool place [Dallara IndyCar Factory]. Main Street in Speedway is developing into a very fun area.” 1201 Main St., Speedway, 222-5238.

Nightcap on Mass Ave: “I love that little area—anywhere on the strip is good.”
