I've been living in Granger for a number of years and if you like quiet towns that time has almost left behind, this is the place for you. Located in Northern Indiana close to the border with Michigan, we're off the beaten track of interstates and big cities. And that's just the way I like it.

We only have about 30,000 in people in town, so while we have a basic shopping area, if you want the more upscale places, you have to head to nearby South Bend. But to be honest, that's not something I do all that often. Granger has a lot of local business owners and it's nice to support them.

The best thing about Granger are the people. Local sports is huge and it's a topic of conversation just about every weekend. A lot of people have lived here their entire lives and while there are places that would be more exciting to live, there isn't anywhere I know of that is filled with such friendly and helpful people.
