Indianapolis Indeed

Indianapolis is getting some recognition: The Circle City climbed last week onto Monster.com's list of 10 best places to live.

Monster.com's summary mentioned Indianapolis' "dramatic revitalization over the past decade." It also cited Indy's ranking as "the most affordable city over 1 million people" by the National Association of Home Builders.

"Rich in arts and culture, Indy combines 'big city style and Hoosier hospitality,' " said Monster.com's report. The list included Austin, Texas; Fargo, N.D.; and Burlington, Vt.; as well as Minneapolis, New York, Phoenix and San Francisco.

I would certainly agree.

The times I've been through Indy everyone was really nice and I always had a good time.

It's about time Indy gets some love. Seriously! I've been telling people for years it's a great place for those very reasons -- big-but-not-too-big city, affordable, easy to get around, nice people. The most underrated aspect is the local music scene. It had a real hey-day a few years ago, but it's still pretty good.

So glad to hear this! We are hoping to be moving up there next year when hubby retires! We have a friend who lives there and loves and hubby always enjoys his trips up there for work!

Hate to be the spoilsport here, but "rich in arts and culture?" I agree with everything else, but not that. Though Indy is improving, I think it has a longgggggggg way to go to get "big city style."

You know Chuck, I almost commented on that part too--but hey, it's getting better, right?

Says: Lawren at April 27, 2004 11:23 AM

Kool FIND! I missed that. Love the new look. Great work. :-)

I disagree with you Chuck. Indy has improved a lot and we have plenty of interesting cultural things. The thing that I like is that you have to dig a little bit to find those jewels. Our culture won't compare to NYC, LA, or Chicago, but it shouldn't have to. It is an apples and oranges comparison. We have tons of nuggets laying around in the forms of festivals, theathers, parks, meausems, trails, etc.

As a sidenote, my guest for a Saturday wedding commented that Indy had a lot more interesting things than she was aware of! Why did she say that? I took her on a tour of downtown. She saw the zoo, Victory Field, Mass Ave, the theather district, the Old Northside and Herron-Morton neighborhoods and the parks with in them. Things are looking up around here :-)
