I have lived in Broad Ripple all my life and wouldn't go anywhere else! I love how tight knit the village is and how all the small businesses support each other. There are so many cute shops, fun restaurants, and art to explore, along with annual festivities! Currently Broad Ripple Ave. is closed down to local traffic, making the public able to walk around freely and restaurants able to set up tables and chairs outside so people can socially distance themselves. From the nostalgic bridge overlooking the canal with Good Earth right there to grab corn to feed the ducks, to the new dog park at Broad Ripple park, there are so many fond memories I have of Broad Ripple, and love making more!

I have lived in Broad Ripple a total of four years, and I absolutely love it! The environment of the community encourages an active lifestyle, as many people are often outside and walking to their destinations or taking a jog and enjoying the weather. The local restaurants and shops have great products and food and most are pet-friendly, allowing pet owners to bring their pets to sit with them on patios if they come along. Everything is within walking distance and is very accessible with the Monon walking/biking trail, and the community exudes an ambiance of health and happiness.
Broad Ripple is a quaint unique town. With botiques and resturants of small buisness owners. It is low crime rate and beautiful scenery. The resturants are unique and they are not franchised, with unique foods and creative talents of chefs and creative art along the main street in town. There are no other shops or resturants in Indiana that are in Broad Ripple. So much diversity in this small unique town, diverse in people, food and art. There is a trail for walking and bike riding as well.
