I have lived in Ellettsville, Indiana for the past sixteen years and love it here. The only thing I would change is to add a larger winter festival with an ice rink and vendors to celebrate the Christmas holiday.

There's a lack of diversity within the residence, and the bigotry is very high. It's down the road from IU Bloomington, yet it still doesn't want to move with the times.
It's a very small welcoming town, the school corporation is a great community school that involves the students. There is only one small grocery store and a few restaurants in town.
