Review of Terre Haute, Indiana

Star Rating - 2/1/2006
I lived in Terre Haute for 23 years and in that time the town hardly changed. Opportunity is limited, housing is cheap, yet good salaries are hard to find. The city is very spread out with no real designation of city and suburb, causing a lot of blochy areas with nice to mid income homes on one block, then low income and government housing on the next block. Terre Haute has Indianapolis, to the East about 70 miles, but no city with any significance within 2 hours or more on the N, W, and S. With all the major highways going through this city you would think it would be attractive to busines and industry, however it is not. Steve Martin called Terre Haute the "Armpit" of America. He was not far off.
