Johnson County has been a great county to grow up in. It has been ranked as a top middle class area to live in by CNN. I can stand by that. Franklin is where I grew up and work. Franklin is a great community and is continuously growing and getting better. All across the county there is always something to do. Greenwood has a great shopping area with plenty of restaurants to choose from. Whiteland is a family friendly city with attractions such as Rascal's fun zone where you can play arcade, race go-karts, play putt-putt, and more! Indian Creek and Bargersville has beautiful lakes and scenery. Overall this is a grade A community with tons to do, friendly people, and a very low crime rate!
I really enjoy the small town feel living in Franklin, but also am grateful that this city is expanding. It is a very community driven place to live. Being able to walk a couple blocks to an event that is going on downtown is awesome. I moved here from Indianapolis and enjoy the fact I feel safer at home.
