Indy - 5/21/2008

I have lived in 11 states and moved away from Indianapolis to San Francisco, to Chicago, to Michigan, and back to Indianapolis. I really love it here and can't believe everyone on this site that like to complain about this city. Let me tell you something - there are great areas of every town. I talk to people everyday that gripe about the culture, but have never been to the museums or shows. This is a really clean city to live in, with GREAT schools, ultra low housing costs, and fairly cheap taxes. The roads are almost the best in the country. You can actually save for retirement and pay a house off in 5 years. There are plenty of jobs to be had and Indianapolis actually has a good technical core that is developing at a good pace. True it is cheap to live here and you can fall into a 35K, but you can do that anywhere. And the people are NICE. You can get stuck at a 4 way stop and all the people wave at each other to go (no you go...). I watched three college kids help an old lady in the parking lot the other day. And they called her "MAM" on top of it. The reason that the bar scene is not the greatest and the clubs don't boom every night is because that is not the kind of people Indianapolis hosts. If you actually want to be able to save 35-50 percent of your income and have a great, safe, enjoyable life with friendly people, a low cost of living, and mostly tolerable weather - Indianapolis is the place for you. If you get bored - the 50K you save every year over NY and LA buys a lot of vacations to anywhere you want to go.

Wonderful Low Cost Housing and Cost of Living - 4/6/2008

I have lived in the Indianapolis area for 9 years and was born and raised in Indiana. I have lived in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Florida. Although, different cities and states have their pluses, I have found Indianapolis and the surrounding areas to be very accomadating. I now own a real estate company, and whether you are investing or buying an individual home to live in, you can get a great place for less money compared to many cities across the nation. The surrounding counties are good as well. I can speak of Hamilton County the best because I live near there on the Marion County side and do business in Fishers, Noblesville, and Carmel. I have friends and family that live and work in these areas of Hamilton county, which has award winning schools and great places to raise a family. The cost of living is relatively inexpensive compared to many areas of the country as well. Yes, we do have some winter weather that we don't like, but the snow fall isn't as bad as people think. A few days out of the year become difficult to travel, but some years it might be 10 days and other years it might be 5 days. I have been guilty of compaining about weather no matter where I live, the change of seasons are nice. I will always compalain about winter because I don't like being cold, but overall, it isn't bad.

Flooding - 3/21/2008

How does the central part of the state (i.e. Indianapolis and Noblesville) compare to the southern portion regarding elevation, waterways, and of course FLOODING!! We are thinking of relocating to Indiana. thanks Topographically Challenged Tony

Indy...a Welcomed Relief - 3/19/2008

Indy was rated #7 in the Housing Opportunity Index (7th best place to live to be able to buy a home based upon median home price, salaries, property and other taxes, cost of living, etc.). I decided to visit first to see if I would like it and I LOVE IT! I am MOVING HERE within the next 7 to 10 days! The people here are so warm, friendly, courteous, polite, and NOT nasty (like the nasty northerners I lived among in New Jersey). They are even courteous drivers and HARDLY EVER blow their horns! Indy has a BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN, SAFE rejuvenated vibrant downtown. Indy is very easy to get around in and if one wishes, it doesn't take long at all to get out "in the country" away from one of the nicest cities I've ever been in! If you love Country Music as much as I do, you would love it here as there are 12 Country Music radio stations within a 50-mile radius of Indy. So...I'm NOT considered "wierd" (as I was in Jersey) for liking Country Music. I wish I had visited Indy sooner and moved here sooner, but you're not supposed to say "could've/would've/should've". And...if you are a NASCAR fan, as I am, remember, Indy is the home of the Indy 500 in May!

Family life - 2/25/2008

Indianapolis is a great place to raise a family. It also has a reasonable housing market.Unless you grew up in Indiana, researching the web for entertainment will definately help. Slow at times but overall a nice place to grow up and raise a family.

retired - 1/5/2008

We're retired with enough income to live just about anyplace - within reason of course. Since we're both mid-westerners we like the change of seasons but don't need the extremes of very hot summers and severe winters. Indianapolis is moderate in both climate and taxes so we think it's a great place to live. We travel extensively both domestic and foreign but enjoy returning home because Indy is a "rational" place to live from day to day. We're a four hour drive from Chicago, a couple hours by air to New York, and generally have good flight connections to just about anyplace.

weather and driving - 1/1/2008

Hey everyvody, my wife and I are thinking of relocating to the Indianapolis area. Our main concern is winter driving conditions and weather (i.e. snow fall). We have heard the term "black ice" use for some northern states, does Indiana qualify? Also I have seen an average snowfall of about 25 inches. How often are there blizzrd conditions? We have lived in Florida our entire lives (30yrs) and are looking for a change and a better place to raise our family. We would love to see the color change in the fall and maybe get a white Chirstmas. thanks tony

So I wanted to gets a few peoples opinoions on winter driving. thanks tony

Decent City - 12/26/2007

I am an Indiana Native and have lived in Indianapolis for 3 years. Indianapolis is an okay please to live. If you are a 20 something person looking for entertainment other than clubbing you will find some nice lounges, sporting events and theatre events. If you are into more eclectic things then don't move to Indiana period! We are a bit conservative. There aren't many ethinically diverse scenes going on in Indy and that is a major negative for the city. Like any other major city there are high crime areas, and low crime areas. Traffic can be a motherbear on the interstate during rush hour but what major city doesn't have that either?! The job market could be better. It is hard to find a job in the marketing field unless you are into sales. Indianapolis is a great place to START your life on your own if your single, but once you're ready to go to the next level, MOVE!

Best Worst Place to live - 12/20/2007

Wow. I'm from Los Angeles. I have been out priced out of the Real Estate and rental market. $1200 to pay rent for a 1 bedroom is not worth it to me anymore. Indianapolis looked good because I can almost buy a house cash, but I have never done "bored" and "racist". Los Angeles does not have either. There are just too many cultures and races out here. Most of us hate all races equally (including our own) and learn to get along. There are problems with "class issues" too many f...ing billionairs who hate poor people. But we usually dont see them to often, just feel their presence. Thank you for your comments about Indi. I think I'll move somewhere else or at least stay at a hotel for a week.

Climate of Indianapolis - 12/9/2007

Like most midwest cities, you get all four seasons in Indianapolis. It gets hot in the summer and cold in the winter and is very pleasant in the spring and fall. This is my first winter in Indianapolis, but I have found the city does a great job of plowing snow and keeping the roads and sidewalks salted.

Honest feedback for Paula - 10/22/2007

Paula, I have been to Cinti a million times, and honestly, it's actually a tad bit better than Indianapolis. Cinti has serious problems, and in Indianapolis, those same problems are greatly magnified. Indiana's not far from her history. Cinti's a bit more....progressive. I have been many places in my line of work, and try to judge my experiences as it relates to the quality of life overall in each place fairly. There's no perfect place as we all know, because we get there and make it imperfect right quick. Howsoever, Indy has thorns and thistles and peeps and whistles. There are wonderful, interesting people here in Indy, but we're all "outta towners"...lol! If you must move here, please remember: -Be ready to be bored...and I mean bbbbbbboredddddd....dd.dd.ddd. -Don't bring any kids. The IPS schools are hideous, not much different than Cinti schools. And due to the spillover effect, these ruffian kids are invading the halfway decent township schools too; so get ready for lowered expectations or select private accredited schools. -Have at least one good vehicle because the public transit here is horrible, nearly the worst in the country--- so don't let your car break down. Have a second backup car. Cabs don't take credit/debit cards here, so you'd have to walk to wherever you go. And Indy drivers are about the worst I have every seen, so watch out when trying to walk. -Do not attempt to purchase a home due to Indy's shark lending craze. Or, have $500,000 ready to purchase a decent home in Zionsville. -Bring your sunglasses becasuse you will witness some of the CRAZIEST, ridiculous, foolish, backwards, dumptruck things in the world here. -Get ready to repeat yourself four times whenever speaking to a hoosier. They are extremely nasty, and will be hateful first. Then you say your question again, then they'll change WEATHER on ya, and say "huh?" Really, they've got no right to jenk on KY people. It's the kettle calling the pot--- can't say the word, might be considered politically incorrect--- - All there are are clubs that cater to the hoodlums and ravers. No visible ethnic diversity. Don't be the wrong colour speaking a language that isn't Ameriphonics. Don't dare look for something other than a restaurant for entertainment. Jazz here is a joke. Music scene? What scene? There are some jewels here, in the music, poetry cafe, art, etc worlds, but you must look a LONG while to find them. Broad Ripple's halfway decent, but a bad imitation of Greenwich Village, slash San Francisco, slash SoHo. Try their ArtFair, if they don't cancel it to sell free cancer ribbons. -Bring your own clothes because the shoppes here suck. You will be back in CinCity or RiverTown or ShadyChi-Town trying to rustle up some current global trends. Overall, Paula, BE may not have a realistic idea of the quality of life in Indy. You will see nearly NO Black business people unless they own a fried fish joint- not kidding Paula, or a dadgum funeral home. Remember to close your mind when moving here because "here they don't tolerate no revo-mu-tionaries". Get in the box, if you want a perfect fit. Otherwise do like the rest of us OuttaTowners do: create your own fantasy world. Food is king here. Nothing else to do. -Hope you're married because if not, get ready for a long jog. No pickin's in this here market. Only gay, "downlow" (they run stories on it in Indy's alleged "alternative" public newspaper) guys, or the type that live with mommy and throw girls off balconies, or beat 'em upside the noggin with 1960's IRON lamps. All FAR below par. Now, if you don't mind interracial dating, good luck. Everyone's scared of that, except trailertrash and momma's HOMEboyz. -Don't forget to bring a mask. Indy STINKS, get here for a day and ride around, you'll see what I'm talking about. Bad as Cinti. The good: ........... crickets chirping. No seriously---- some hoosiers are very friendly, helpful, and kind. Some even know how to read, have read, have traveled, have developed interests outside of watchin' the boob tube and going to strip joints. You will find them. You might even fin -Rural, pastoral scenes in Indiana are ABSOLUTELY GoRgeous! Brown County, and so many other county areas in Indy are gorgeous. But carry your manstopper with ya when ya travel the state because many here don't know what century this is. Try the campgrounds. Gorgeous. Southern indiana is loooo-vely. Try native wine. It's very good. Try native delicacies, try book clubs--- they are excellent here. Get around intelligent, diverse hoosiers. They will be a breath of badly needed fresh air in this place, if you move here. It can be bearable, and there are worse places than Indy. Overall I give it a C-. Like the people said before, please, please, please.....visit for a month or so first. Otherwise bring your boots cuz you surely going to need 'em and that's real talk right there.........

Ho hum - 9/29/2007

Despite the occasional editorial nod toward "culture", the only thing this city really does well is sports. The low cost of living is outweighed in my opinion by the nearly year-round crappy weather: hot and humid in the summer time, cold and icy in the winter.

Downtown - 9/8/2007

Downtown Indianapolis is a nice place to visit any time of the day or night. I feel safe with me and my family except on Friday or Saturday nights around the Circle Center Mall. Although it is safe, too many young kids are hanging around. They aren't shopping, only walking around in groups. This is the only real issue I've had while being downtown. This area has a good night life with excellent dining.

Foreclosure - 8/20/2007

The city I reside in has a high foreclosure rate and due to high property taxes, it made the housing market decline from a certain standpoint. Although, one person may view this as downfall, another investor may view this as a potential gain.
