Fishers Reviews

One word that accurately describes Fishers is impressive. Fishers is so impressive because of the cleanliness of the town and activities offered. In my opinion, it would be the ideal location for any individual or family seeking to live.

The cleanliness is not limited to the streets, parks, and sidewalks, but the businesses, homes, and schools are in immaculate condition. Also, Fishers offers a wide array of activities for people of all ages and interests. There are several parks and golf courses, and Geist reservoir for those interested in water activities, whether it be boating, fishing, or swimming. It offers plenty of locations for shopping and dining as well, ranging from national chains to original businesses. The town truly provides an immense amount of activities for all residents.

One downfall is the traffic due to the influx of residents. The town is actively working to make it more efficient, and once completed, it will certainly increase the attractiveness even more.
Review Fishers
This is a very nice and safe area to live. There are many public schools, stores, restaurants, hotels, companies, pretty much everything is close by. Driving downtown during rush hour is the only downfall to living in Fishers!
Fishers is a fast growing suburb environment that is a fantastic place to raise children or even pursue a career. The schools in this area are very good and welcoming to new students and families. With the addition of new apartments and neighborhoods all the time, Fishers is not a difficult place to plant some roots and move to. Something that I specifically like about the area are the ample opportunities to get involved in the community - whether it be sports, church life or even fitness classes there is a place for everyone to get involved.
