I have been a resident of Peru, Indiana for a little over 11 years now. I can tell you that Peru is a nice little town full of some of the best people anywhere. Living in Peru is peaceful, drama-free, and relaxing. In my opinion it is one of the best areas in Indiana that you could call home. The crime rate has become a bit concerning just lately, but we all have faith that with some work that can be changed. We have wonderful schools, picture-perfect neighborhoods with well-kept houses and yards, plenty of jobs for everyone, and a lot of folks who just know how to make you feel at home.
For fun we have attractions such as the Circus Hall of Fame, the Periwinkle Circus which is an indoor play center for children, Mississinewa Lake, the Cole Porter Inn, and The Rock Hollow Golf Club for those who enjoy playing a few rounds of golf. We also have some nice little shops and restaurants to enjoy.
