I like the closeness and the accessibility to many different restaurants and clothing stores, however, the price of living can sometimes be a bit much. The people are friendly!

Munster has really excellent school system and also everything is very close and convenient to the location where i live.
The best thing of all is that i live very close to the grocery store , restaurants, library, school, and the hospital. I will always speak very highly of the community i live in.
Munster is very diverse and that is another reason why i moved and the school system is the best . The school system really knows how to keep the family involved in the system of their education and what we as parents can do to make it easy for our kids to go to school . The town of Munster makes you feel welcome .Thank you Town of Munster
Munster is basically like every functioning town, it's got a school system, shopping and eating centers, and a wide array of businesses. It's very typical of a Northwest Indiana town. Though, it's more of an eat-sleep and repeat type of town, good to live in but absolutely nothing to rave about, other than 3 Floyds. It's also very small, so not much to even build unless neighboring towns are willing to give up or sell some of their own land.
