There seems to be an event going on for town frequently. Car shows, festivals, wine tasting, lottery drawings for the local K of C and many more. I have lived here almost 3 years and I enjoy it.

The future of Washington, IN is looking to be very bright. With the addition of I-69 to this general area, many new businesses are looking to take root. The more commercialized this area becomes, the bigger the city will become, therefore increasing the quality of life.
The weather here is pretty normal besides, the snow that we are getting now. We've had a tornado once a couple years ago and that was the first one in years. We have a few thunderstorms and severe weathers a few times a year. During the winter, we've had different kinds of weather. One year, we didn't have snow at all and then, in the spring, we got our snow. It was very weird weather. Summer can sometimes be very hot, but most of the time I am walking my dog and swimming with my family. Fall is pretty cool and has pretty moderate weather. Our weather is pretty different every year.
