Great schools, friendly neighbors, safe, bike-friendly, kid-friendly, award-winning youth sports programs, many outdoor art festivals and activities. Great place to live!
Carmel Indiana is amazing!!!! It is beautiful and just the little things the city does makes everything enjoyable. There is plenty of things to do here. There is plenty of outdoor activities, so I don't know why niche decided to give that a C+, but whatever. One of the active things that you can do here is go to the Monon Trail or to the Monon Center. There is plenty of shopping experiences to do here as well. You have the Clay Terrace Mall, and there are plenty of things to do near by as well. Carmel is right next to Fishers 116th Street, so you can be able to do some shopping there as well. Ikea Indianapolis is coming soon so is TopGolf, so just get ready for Fall and Winter next year because a lot of things are coming our way! ;]
One of best places for families to live and thrive. Amazing public school system, with opportunities for all students. Great people, and a beautiful area. Loved it!
