Schererville, Indiana has been an amazing place to grow up. It offers beautiful parks, a bike trail, and is part of an amazing school system. The neighborhoods are full of kind neighbors and great housing. The only downside I would have about Schererville is it's lack of a bustling downtown area. It would be nice to have more restaurants and businesses in the downtown area in which to visit with friends and family. Sitting outside a coffee shop or walking past other small businesses in a family friendly area would not only ultimately positively benefit the economy of the town, but also provide its citizens with more opportunities to enjoy themselves when they leave their homes. As of right now, people in Schererville complain about not having much to do in the immediate area and are often forced to travel to other nearby towns to enjoy themselves, so it would be nice to have more opportunities closer to home.

Schererville is dynamic community in Northwest Indiana. It has a small town atmosphere but next door to Chicago which is the third largest city in the United States. It's has an excellent school system and has the Indiana tax advantage system which is one of lowest cost of living states in the Midwest. Schererville is an hour and drive or less from Universities like Notre Dame, Purdue, and Northwestern which makes Schererville one the best communities to live, work, and play in Northwest Indiana.
Schererville is a family friendly and warm spirited town, and is where I have spent many years of my life living with my family in a small neighborhood. My public school experience was filled with support, and the town has lots of hidden treasures.
