Current Resident: I’ve lived in Fishers my whole life. It’s a very neat little community and I love it with all my heart. The people are very friendly and there are a lot of job opportunities in the restaurant and business industries. Construction and improvements are being made often to make Fishers a better community in which to live and work. The downtown area is a short walk away from most neighborhoods, and it’s only a short drive to Indianapolis. I would really recommend it to anyone looking for a place to crash for the weekend or to live in after retirement. It’s just a really great community!

Current Resident: Great little town that is gaining population quickly! We have every shop and store that you could possibly need to settle down and live out the rest of your life happily. The people are nice and the traffic is better. Having almost 0 stop lights in our city, you can plan on saving your brakes considering you hardly use them. Come visit Carmel, IN sometime. You may just never leave.

Former Resident: Los Alamos is in a remote but idyllic ponderosa pine setting atop 5 mesas (7,500 ft elevation) overlooking the Rio Grande valley. It is a town of cultural diversity being the home to scientists from all over the world, yet encircled by Native American land. It is a wonderful place for raising a family...safe environment...good school system...lots of free activities designed for young families. There are many trails to hike, parks to explore, playgrounds to enjoy, museums and nature center activities to enlighten. There is a golf course, an aquacenter and ski slopes at hand. If you like to perform musically or theatrically there are various organizations which provide plenty of opportunities. There is an arts center with a shop to display ones creations. There is a large public library that is well supported by its highly educated community members. We lived in Los Alamos for 12 years...it was a privilege to have been able to do so.

Niche User: I came here 20 years ago, thinking we'd be here about 3 years, but it's been a great place to raise a family, and now we've moved our retired parents and other family members into the community! The altitude can be tough for those coming from sea level, but other than that it's a fantastic place. Concerts every Friday night (free) at local parks, parades, art events, a craft brewing cooperative, great neighbors, trails, skiing, it's a super area and it's welcoming and visually appealing. It helps that it has a great climate and good schools, too.

Current Resident: Huntertown is a quaint, relaxed village. Full of kind shops and easy going locals, just north of Fort Wayne sits a welcoming jewel of a town. Huntertown houses a family friendly local, with plenty of parks and activities for families to enjoy, especially in the summer months, including the Heritage Day parade. Not to mention the excellent education opportunities from Northwest Allen County schools. This is a perfect place to raise a family. Because of the location of Huntertown, it has the ideal distance away from the city to still have peace and quiet, yet a short drive will get you to any of the amazing local restaurants, supermarkets, and downtown necessities one may desire. Being so close has also had the perk of great medical and health facilities that have spread north into the area, specifically from Parkview Health.
Overall, Huntertown is an amazing area, booming with new faces all the time, and it's no wonder. This area is perfect for raising families, and settling down.

Current Resident: I like living in a small cultured tourist town such as Le Claire. There are things to do and local shops to see. I live in an area that has MidAmerican Energy which I enjoy having. There is also a consumer choice in Internet services which is nice. The amount of local business diversity is amazing!

Current Resident: Overall, my experience in Madison is very good. I lived in Madison for 12+ years and this town grew tremendously. Career-wise, this town is popularly known for engineering, computing, logistics field, medical job opportunities. The public schools have a great and advanced education system. Also, it's very safe, diverse, and friendly based on my experience. There are so many restaurants, buildings, nature trails, etc that are provided in this town. It's safe and friendly. If you need to take your kids out somewhere then there is a TopGolf, skating rinks, trampoline park, etc.

Current Resident: Bentonville, Arkansas is truly a unique and beautiful area! While it has hometown feel, it is still rather large. I was born and raised here and it is my favorite place in the world. With the Walmart home office being here in Bentonville, many thinks are given to our community and to our public schools. I am truly blessed to live in such a safe area!

Current Resident: Chappaqua is a tight-knit community where people care about their neighbors. The greatest testament to this is that a large number of people raised here move back to raise their own families. Fundraiser for those in need is sell out of seats. The majority of teachers at every level are passionate and genuinely thrilled to work with such motivated students. Kids stay in touch after high school, recall their childhood fondly and come back for alumni events and sporting events.

Current Resident: Great schools. Close to cities and culture, but removed enough to keep the small town vibe.
Neighborhoods are peaceful and friendly...although avoid Celebration Park as they can get a bit carried away (if you park wrong, they will complain. Sneeze and everyone knows. And don’t dare have a party unless they are all invited! Too much HOA power for the busybodies).
But a terrific little town for families and amazing schools!

Niche User: Where I lived, the people were really kind and generous and so very welcoming when my family moved in. The school district was rated excellent every year by the state and I didn't see it changing any time soon. My high school, Turpin High School, won the silver award for being one of the highest ranked schools in the nation. Children definitely receive a high quality of education in a safe and inviting environment. There was also very many choices for entertainment and fun things to do. My family personally loved to go to the Reds games and I loved to go to Newport and look around and visit the aquarium. There were many safe and beautiful parks and many fun school events. There were also many opportunities to give back to the community and serve others which I absolutely loved. I am very grateful that I grew up in Anderson township. I always felt safe and at home and happy. I received an excellent education that is helping me now through college. I would do it all over and move to Anderson with my family if I got the chance. The future only looks brighter.

Current Resident: I like Goldsby for three important reasons. One reason is that you feel like you are in the country but in reality you are only 10 minutes away from downtown Norman. The second reason i like Goldsby is because of the awesome people here. Everyone is friendly and incredibly nice. The third reason i like Goldsby is because it is close to the University of Oklahoma and i love going to college football games.

Current Resident: Perrysburg is a comfortable, safe place to establish a foundation and build a family. It is a growing suburb in the Greater Toledo area and is ranked in the top 30 places to raise a family in Ohio. The Perrysburg public education system is excellent, and the high school offers a large variety of courses designed to meet the individual needs of the students and their futures. One will not become easily bored in Perrysburg, as there are many different places that offer fun activities for all ages. The Levis Commons shopping center is home to some of the best restaurants in town, and downtown Perrysburg holds a farmer's market every week in the summer. The Way Public Library also hosts frequent family-friendly events. The only negative thing about Perrysburg is the lack of diversity; however, Perrysburg is a welcoming city to all and is constantly evolving.
