I live in Fort Wayne. It’s about 2 hours north of Indianapolis. I like it OK, but I’m from St. Louis so it was a shock moving to a smaller town/city.It has a great zoo, an art museum, tons of parks and nice people. Northeast Indiana (where the city is) has been hardest hit by the economy. One town has had one of, if not the highest unemployment rate in the country.

I visit Indy often and it’s great. Excellent downtown. Great suburbs. Good schools.

The political climate in Indiana, I feel, is pretty far to the right. Indy and Fort Wayne and South Bend will be more liberal, what with colleges being there, but the rest of the state is pretty conservative. People around here aren’t really OK with change – big debate about a casino going on right now.

But overall, Indiana is a good family place. Weather is the same as Missouri, just bit colder up north.

Hope this has helped!

Yeah, I failed to mention that Elkhart County did have the highest unemployment rate in the U.S. (county directly North of where I’m from).  It’s starting to pick back up though.

Shoot for Fishers, IN. It is the nicest part of the Indy area. It is rather upscale; you have the Castleton Mall. In general, if you are looking to move to the Indianapolis area, I would stick to the northeast side.
