You Will Not Believe Which City in America is the Best Place to Live
America – the land of the brave, the land of the free, the greatest democracy. As good as that may sound, not all places in the country are the best ones to live in. As much as you want to know the worse place to build a home in America, we know that what you really want more is to know the best locations to settle in.
Pack your bags folks, because it’s time to move to Carmel, Indiana! Yes, it is the city that has been named the best place to live in the country, for 2 years in a row. So it’s no surprise if you see people already living there rejoicing and celebrating. There are only 91,065 of them.
Naming Carmel the most excellent city to live in the United States is not something people just randomly decided on, different factors were considered. Some of the things that were taken into account are how the city is ranked among other settlements in the country vis-à-vis crime statistics, employment statistics, the quality of education, poverty rate, ease of transportation, low taxes, and trends in housing.
Brief History of Carmel
In case you’re not aware, Carmel is called the city of roundabouts. Why, you ask? Well, it’s because it contains more roundabouts than any other cities in America. The place was established in the year 1837, having the original name of ‘Bethlehem’. The area that’s considered as the first original plot in Carmel has been marked by a clock tower. The name was changed to Carmel in 1874, after the name of the first post office established in the place.
Fast Growing City
Perhaps one of the reasons why Carmel has been awarded the best place to live in America, 2 years in a row, is that it has become one of the fastest economically growing cities in the country. From being basically unknown and a sleepy location, it now thrives economically, and is considered a very exciting city.
Other Reasons You Should Move to Carmel:
A Free and Safe Place to Be Active
One of the great qualities Carmel has is that it provides a safe neighborhood, including the area the spans the Monon Trail. You don’t need to spend money on gym memberships if you want to stay fit, just run along the historical trail that’s 18.1 mile long, which is very popular with runners, rollerbladers and bikers.
Carmel High School
If you have children, you would have a chance to send them to the biggest high school in the state of Indianapolis, Carmel High School. The home of the ‘Greyhounds’ can provide your kids with quality education and a safe environment.
The Center for the Performing Arts
If you love music and the performing arts, one of the reasons you should move here is the Center for the Performing Arts. Comments from people who have witnessed performances in the theatre are all very positive – great lighting, great sounds, all seating places provide a great view, several bars to minimize long waiting lines for patrons, and easy access to parking. Who knows, if theatre is your passion, you would even have a chance to perform at the center.
You are Never Alone
When you visit downtown, you may go by yourself but you will never be alone, since there are statues everywhere, depicting humans doing everyday business. You can sit on a bench beside the statue of a businessman reading a newspaper, feel safe beside the statue of a policeman, or just smile at statues of fathers spending time with their kids. You won’t feel alone because the statues were made look realistic. Not as realistic as the wax figures of Madame Tussaud’s, though, but close enough.
Great Farmer’s Market
Food is a basic necessity; naturally you would want a great place to buy food from. People have only good words for the farmer’s market in Carmel, from good music and ambiance, to a wide variety of foods offered, and the unity among customers like they’re one family – wouldn’t you want to be a part of that? Some people who have been to the market said that you will eat your way around the market, which will take you anywhere between 1 to 2 hours to visit all the stalls. Perhaps stay longer if it’s as great as they consider it to be?
