If you are looking for a safe and prosperous area to live, Fishers is the place for you! Education is perhaps one of the most critical factors that is taken into consideration when deciding on where to raise a family. Fishers has to great public schools go above and beyond the academic requirements set by the state. Not only does Fishers offer education, however they present a safe and fun environment for all families and all ages. For Indiana, this is the place to be!

Fishers is a relatively new city and it's growing! People here are nice and not judgmental, unlike Carmel. The traffic is starting to get worse because of IKEA. The area is clean and well put together. Education here really prepares you for college.
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.
