Indiana, PA Could Be A Lot Better
I've been a resident of Indiana, Pennsylvania for just over a decade now. In all honesty this place was a lot better in days gone by. Our crime rate is steadily growing, there are no decent jobs to be had, the public schools are getting consistently poor reviews because of high dropout rates and low graduation rates. Most of the families have lived here for several years, and those are the people who make this town livable. With the new influx of people you have some good and some bad, like anywhere else. The neighborhoods used to be clean, well kept, and safe. That's not so much the case anymore. Our weather can be a problem - bad storms and tornados sometimes.
Since we're close to Pittsburgh there are some recreational activities. There's the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Everyone looks forward to the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival all year. We also have the Jimmy Stewart Museum and LumberjAxes which teaches axe-throwing and holds competitions. We have a fairly new establishment called the Flavory Hookah Lounge. Indiana, Pennsylvania does have a few good points unfortunately it just isn't enough to give it a better review.
