Indiana doesn't have as much to offer as many other states. I wish things were cheaper especially for college students. Trying to find an affordable apartment to live in or getting accepted for scholarships is hard. I am seeing more restaurants opening in this area but none that are extraordinary. People are for the most part nice, some are rude. I believe that you will have that mostly everywhere though. I wouldn't choose to live here again because I've lived in northwest Indiana almost my whole life. I want to travel and explore. I know this world has so much to offer me. I just wish the economy was better and the cost of things were somewhat affordable.

It's a small town and people try to make it exciting, but it doesn't always work. They have downtown movies and new restaurants once in a whole to liven things up. But it's boring the majority of the time. The closest mall is 25 minutes away along with the beach. And the movies aren't really close to where anyone in the town lives.
There aren't really any bars in the area excerpt at Buffalo Wild Wings. But the town does have cute little successful restaurants downtown like margaritas and the silver spoon. We also have bigger name brand restaurants like chipotle and panera. There's a lot of fast food in the area.
