Northern Indiana isn’t known for it’s scenery, unless you enjoy a perfect grid of county roads and endless stretches of flat farmland. It’s downright drepressing in the winter time. An infinite expanse of grey, brown, and the most bland mix of surburbia and small towns you can imagine.
If you want to buy a house, raise a family, and have access to generally good schools and low property taxes it’s ideal. If you want diversity, culture, and the ability to walk somewhere? Not so much.
