I like Goshen because of the interactive and updated Downtown. The city does a great job at keeping the downtown alive and running. There are plenty of fun and interesting shops welcoming newage lifestyles and urban vibes. There is a vinyl store downtown that offers live music which is a great hangout area and fun place to go with friends. They also offer a fun First Fridays where people come together every first friday of the month and eat food, play games, and have live entertainment. However, there are things I'd like to see change. A more enforced recycling program, solar energy usage, and environmental awareness programs would help this young community bring good habits to everyone and spread universal affects to fight global warming.

Goshen has been an amazing place to grow up. Many people move away for college and end up right back here! There are countless things to do for people of all ages, making this a great spot to raise a family.
Goshen Indiana is a small town, this allows you to build strong relationships within the town. However, at times it does get boring doing the same thing and if you do want to change the scenery then you have to drive around 40 minutes out of town. I wish Goshen had different activities, food places, and hangout spots for teenagers around town.
