I resided in Fishers, Indiana in Hamilton County from 2005 through 2012. There are a number of attractions, restaurants, night life, and shopping options available. Of note, Fishers was nominated in Money Magazine as one of the best places to live. It is a suburban town which the population increased substantially in the seven years I resided here. The community I found to be quaint, including an average home value in the 250s and average rent at $950 per month. Crime is kept in check and unemployment runs relatively half of the state of Indiana at four percent. I enjoyed the four full seasons in Fishers including the cold temperatures and snow during December, January and February, and comfortable mid 80 degree temperatures in June, July and August.
Schooling is readily available at all levels and ranks as the highest in the state including 10 elementary schools, Hamilton Southeastern High School, and continuing education at Butler University, Marian University, and Indiana University-Purdue University (IUPU). All religious denominations are local including Methodist, Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopalian, and Churches of Christ. I had a number of restaurants that I frequented and recommend Peterson's, King Chef Chinese Restaurant, and Sahm's Restaurant and Bar.
My family and I stayed active by using the S.P.O.R.T. recreation facilities at Billericay Park. A multitude of sports are offered including baseball, basketball, football, lacrosse, rugby, soccer, softball, volleyball, and track for all ages. During the afterhours night life I enjoyed the Fionn MacCool's Irish Pub that always offered a wide variety of rock and interesting Irish folk type music. Finally, there is a vast array of shopping options in Fishers. I frequented the Deer Creek Shop, Centre North Shops, Hobbytown USA, North by the Northeast Shopping Center, and Super Target for my groceries. The nice thing about Fishers is if I could not find what I needed, then Indianapolis was just 30 minutes down the road on I-465.
