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!
Review 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.
Fishers has been the best place to grow up. It is growing rapidly because of all the positive changes taking place. Job availability has increased, the neighborhoods are safe, and the school system is amazing. Overall, everyone is friendly with one another and I have never felt unsafe or scared while in Fishers. There are so many recreational things to do, due to the suburban setting. For example, Geist Reservoir is located here. People can go boating, swim, kayak, etc. Fishers also has local restaurants and stores that give the town its unique feel. Residents work on keeping the streets clean and are always striving to improve different aspects of the town.
