So my wife and I are looking at relocating to central Indiana after I get out of the military, in about a year or so. Trying to do some research well in advance, instead of trying city x, y, or z, and finding we dont like the place.
So a little background: My wife's family is from Indiana, mainly from the Carmel/Fishers area, a few farther north up in Merrillville/Crown Point, so somewhere around there is where we have been looking.
I would love to hear everyone's opinion on the area, as far as quality of schools, cost of living, crime/safety, etc...whatever you think might be applicable to a family(two children as well, ages 5 and 3) looking at the area. Generally from Indy(no idea on which neighborhood, just no ruling Indy out) up to Crown Point. We have looked at Carmel, Fishers, Nobelsville, Zionsville, Avon, Lafayette/West Lafayette, etc, etc.
