The food and drinks in the area are wonderful. The restaurants vary from Chinese food, to Mexican food, to Japanese food, to just the normal American traditional foods such as chicken. There are a decent number of restaurants around here that all seem to have great business and have been open for years!

There are so many choices for restaurants in this area it is great! It is a perfect balance between fast food and fancy places. Everyone can afford to go out to eat with great options like Applebees and TGIF. There are also many great fancy restaurants on the higher end for people looking for a better quality establishment.
I love the weather in northern Indiana! It gets the best of all 4 seasons. In the summer it is nice and hot and the winter we get plenty of snow. Some people can complain that we get too much snow and it gets too cold but honestly there is no better place to get everything else like we do here!
