I’ve lived in Fishers my whole life. It’s a very neat little community and I love it with all my heart. The people are very friendly and there are a lot of job opportunities in the restaurant and business industries. Construction and improvements are being made often to make Fishers a better community in which to live and work. The downtown area is a short walk away from most neighborhoods, and it’s only a short drive to Indianapolis. I would really recommend it to anyone looking for a place to crash for the weekend or to live in after retirement. It’s just a really great community!

Fishers is an up and coming city close to Indianapolis, Indiana. Once a town, this area of living as blossomed with opportunity and residents. The city itself is located in a good area, which is north east from Indianapolis. It is close to concert centers and features many great schooling centers. The city is safe and quiet, but does allow for fun activities like the Farmers Market, Spark festival, and many other family fun. The city is truly a great place to grow up and raise a family. It is a supportive community and has so much to offer!
Fishers is a really cool place to live! It's up and coming. The school system here is pretty good and offers reasonable living and many job opportunities. One thing I hope to see if more diversity, but I think that'll happen over time! There's a mix of both young and older generations living here as well! Another thing I'd like to see is more opportunities for nightlife or at least a few restaurants open a little later into the night (9 pm-ish)!
