My boyfriend and I moved to Westfield about a year ago, and we absolutely love it! We come from a very small town, and so moving to the Indianapolis area was slightly intimidating. However, Westfield gives us that small, hometown feel, with all the perks of a big city. It is definitely an up & coming area. In just the year that we've been here, we've seen major changes, such as: new restaurants & businesses opening, walking trails being put in, sidewalk & road improvements and more! The town is currently working on creating an outdoor space where residents can enjoy picnics, concerts, and even ice-skating in the winter! We love that there is so much to do & that we can feel safe while doing it. We would recommend Westfield to anyone!

Westfield, Indiana started as a small farming community established in 1848, with historical notoriety as being a stop on the Underground Railroad. More recently, the small city has exploded in popularity due to its preeminent quality public school system, plentiful athletic resources, and safe, suburban neighborhoods. It was recently voted as being one of the most desirable places to live in the US. While tax money has gone towards building roads, improving the police force, and renovating school buildings, money has not gone towards any new forms of entertainment. Every building in town is now a restaurants, shop, or office, even in the lackluster "downtown" area. There is simply nothing to do for all of the citizens. I would love to see a centralized hub for entertainment such as a community center.
Westfield is the best of both worlds - city and country! It has grown a ton just since I moved here in 2014, and there are new buildings going up everywhere you look. It has lost some of its small town appeal, but with all it has to offer there isn't much to complain about. I feel very safe living here. It's giving Carmel a run for its money.
