Indianapolis: A Thriving Metropolis with Something for Everyone

But there’s so much more to Indy in terms of arts, culture, cuisine, sports, and more.

Avon: Small-Town Life with the Big City Nearby
When this area was first settled back around 1830, the town was named Smootsdell. Needless to say, renaming the town to Avon in 1870 was a good move. The population of Avon has grown over the past decade from a little over 12,000 to more than 18,000, which means it’s a good place for people who want to experience small-town life with big city options. It’s only five miles southwest of Indianapolis, and just ten minutes from Indianapolis International Airport.
Bloomington: The Quintessential University City
When settlers arrived to this area in 1818, they found themselves in the midst of “a haven of blooms,” which resulted in naming the settlement Bloomington. Located an hour’s drive southwest of Indianapolis along Interstate 69, this bustling city of more than 85,000 is home to Indiana University’s flagship campus (there are seven other campuses) and its more the 40,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
Carmel: Upscale Professional Living and Working
Situated on the beltway on the north side of Indy, Carmel has been named one of the best places to live in the entire nation by multiple publications, including Money Magazine, the American City Business Journal, and Forbes. Much of the city’s population of more than 100,000 were attracted by the more than 100 corporations headquartered here, and many others with a strong presence. It’s also a very livable city as much attention has been paid to making it sustainable, walkable, and bike-friendly with nearly 200 miles of trails and paths.
Danville: Simple, Small, Peaceful Living
If small-town living is your thing, then you might end up in the county seat of Hendricks County, but you’ll still be less than an hour’s drive southwest of Indianapolis and everything the big city has to offer for day-tripping. Founded in 1824 and with a population just under 10,000, the town’s claim to fame is the Hendricks County Historical Museum, which is in an 1866 building that served as the town jail until 1974. But what’s notable is that it is the only surviving example of Second Empire architecture in the whole country.
Fishers: A Fast-Growing Indy Suburb
Located slightly northeast of Indianapolis on Interstate 69, Fishers is only five miles from the Indy beltway and 16 miles from the heart of Circle City. First settled in 1802, the population has recently more than doubled over the past two decades from 38,000 to the present total of more than 95,000. In 2017 Money magazine included Fishers on its list of the 100 best places to live. People praise it as a place to be for entrepreneurship, livability, and safety.
Fort Wayne: Friendly, Affordable City Life
A two-hour drive northeast of Indianapolis will get you to Fort Wayne, the second-biggest city after Indy with a population of more than 270,000. A three-time winner of the All American City from the National League of Cities, Fort Wayne is known for lots of family-friendly activities, has a great zoo, one of the best minor league baseball parks anywhere, and has the largest genealogical collections in the country at the Allen County Public Library.
Greenwood: Mid-Sized Community Living
Greenwood shares a border with Marion County, placing it directly south of Indy. First settled in 1823, during the past ten years the city has been adding 1,000 residents a year to its population, which now numbers nearly 60,000. The attraction here is a much lower cost of living than being in Indianapolis while still be close enough to take advantage of everything in the big city. It’s growing, but is managing its growth well.
Lafayette: A Thriving University City
Situated just a little over an hour’s drive northwest of Indianapolis on Interstate 65, Lafayette was founded in 1825 and has a current population of around 72,000. Across the Wabash River from Lafayette is West Lafayette, which is home to Purdue University, which serves a student population of more than 30,000. A mid-sized city, Lafayette offers a lot to do in the way of attractions, and plenty of arts and culture too. It also puts you within 100 miles of Chicago.
Muncie: A College Town with Heart
Just 50 miles northeast of Indianapolis is Muncie, settled in the 1820s and with a current population of just under 70,000. It is home to Ball State University that serves more than 20,000 students. Like several of the mid-sized cities we serve, this is college town with a great vibe and lots to do.
Zionsville: A Quaint Small City
If a brick-paved Main Street lined with small shops and restaurants sounds like the kind of setting that’s right for you, Zionsville might be your final destination. Laid out in 1852 when the railroad reached the area, President-elect Abraham Lincoln made a whistle-stop speech here in 1861 as he traveled to his inauguration. This little city with a population of just over 27,000 has doubled in size over the past decade, but is doing a great job managing the rapid expansion to everyone’s benefit. And it’s only 20 minutes north of downtown Indy.
