Boring place to live... Posted On: 5/23/2010 5:37:50 PM
Indianapolis has an OK downtown with average restaurants and bars. "Average" defines the Indianapolis area. The Indianapolis area, indeed the whole state, is big on Colts football, NASCAR, Pacers basketball, obesity, asphalt, cement, constant road work, the State fair, lots of TV, fast food, SUV's and pickup trucks, schlock sports bars, and a large minority population. All of the foregoing appeal to the class of people one might expect. The suburbs are typical America, the rich keep to their private clubs and estates, members of the middle class buy the largest homes they can afford, and low income people are about as trashy as anywhere; and, there are a lot of them. Everyone drives and drives and drives. There is little public transport. The suburbs grew far ahead of planning, so the traffic is not good. There are much worse cities, but everything else being about equal, you would do well to avoid Indianapolis.

Fishers, IN seems affordable because most of the new homes built in the past 8 years are made of vinyl, plasterboard, and plastic foam. These "affordable" homes rest on tiny lots carved out of corn fields. Fishers is surrounded by malls and apartment complexes and replete with fast food places, nail shops, and dry cleaners. And lots of traffic. The population has nearly doubled over the past 10 years with no significant adjustment to local highway infrastructure. If you enjoy long commutes to the city, asphalt, concrete, and cheesy retail, by all means, come to the Fishers/Noblesville area.
