Fishers Reviews

Fishers is a very family oriented community with phenomenal schools. My children are able to play outside without too much concern for their safety (outside of the normal concerns of traffic, etc.) Everything we need is within close proximity, i.e. grocery, library. Traffic can often be difficult, but those problems are being remedied currently. We love Fishers!

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.
