Review of Indiana, Indiana


Indiana Rocks!
Star Rating - 2/26/2019
I grew up in Indiana and when I became an adult, I left. I sometimes travel through and whenever I do it just makes me sad. There's no pride of ownership in Indiana. It's like everyone who cared left. Maybe they did. Those who remain sure don't care. Everything's falling apart. Crime is out of control. They can't fill potholes. The sewers in Indianapolis routinely explode and the city smells like the back end of a dog. Drug abuse (a problem everywhere) is acute here. I get no joy from this. Indiana was a nice state at one time. Now it's just a lesson that shows what happens when nobody cares about the greater good. If you're thinking of moving to Indiana, do yourself a favor and check out Oklahoma or Louisiana. Yes, those states suck, too, but at least it's a little warmer.

I live in a middle-class suburb of Indianapolis that has been named the best place to live in the United States. I've also visited many pleasant small and mid-sized towns throughout the state. Indianapolis has all the problems of any other major city, but it has its nice areas too. It really matters where you go. Frankly, I can't think of anywhere better to raise my family. We feel safe, and the cost of living is cheap. We hope to retire south just for the better weather, but it's been hard finding a place that suits our lifestyle and budget as well as Indiana does.
