Munster is a very nice area with nice people. It is very safe here. The schools have good education programs, but the facilities are not up to very good standards. We have a stigma for being rich and stuck-up, and some people are like that, but not everyone is. There are a lot of restaurants and fast food places, but not a lot to do for fun. We are close to Chicago though.

The neighborhoods are well kept, the food choices are phenomenal, and the town workers are always out and about doing something in the community. Aside from all that the town always has nice events going on and is a perfect traveling distance form the city for a day trip.
When I first came to Munster, it was not heard of often but a safe and quite neighborhood. Munster is becoming a known town now with several knew businesses being built in our small town. I am not fond of all the recent traffic due to that although I still love and feel safe in Munster.
