I love how much Fishers has changed in the last eight years I've lived here! The continuous developments of housing options, schools, and things to do/see makes Fishers a truly wonderful place to live. Always a part of hustle and bustle, to an extent, the city is continuously innovating itself - inside and out. No matter your interests, Fishers is sure to have something in store to suit you!

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!
Fishers is a nice suburb in Indiana. In the last 5-10 years, Fishers has grown considerably and the entirety of "downtown" has been created. The downtown section of Fishers is completely new, with apartments and little restaurants and shops. This adds a new aspect to the city. The school system in Fishers, Hamilton Southeastern Schools, has succeeded and grown as well. There are many elementary schools, intermediate schools, and junior highs, as well as two, very nice, high schools. The safety in Fishers is pretty good, and a new police department has recently been built. The prices of homes in Fishers can range from lower-middle class to upper-class, which makes it accommodating for all types of families.
