Since that blog post, Plainfield has also opened the new sports complex for local sporting events and practice. It even has free Wi-Fi access.
Based on the location of your new job, you can virtually move anywhere. For a shorter commute, you may want to consider traffic congestion as a factor. Although the north side has made great strides to remedy the congestion, they still have traffic volume issues. Plainfield is cosistently under a 30 minute commute for most people.
Plainfield also has its own open-air shopping mall called Metropolis. It features a JC Penney, Dick's Sporting Goods, Old Navy, Barnes and Noble, Victoria's Secret, Rave movie theatre, Stone Creek Dining Company and so much more. Near the mall you will find a Kohl's, Walmart and some great dining options.
There are a lot of reasons to call Plainfield home. To help in your home search I would recommend visiting http://www.IndyMapSearch.com to help search specific areas in your price range. I have helped several relocating families in recent years. The best way to learn the area is to come for visit without being pressured to buy a house quickly. Spend the day just driving around. Indy has a lot to offer. We could all give you points of interest in each area so that you are best suited to make an unbiased decision on your own. Prior to getting into real estate, I worked in new home construction for 14 years. I know the different areas of Indianapolis very well. They are all great areas to live.

Here's the link to how Fishers is ranked nationally: http://www.fishers.in.us/egov/docs/1278957533435.htm Fishers has a population over 65,000 people and there are many shopping areas such that you'll be no more than 10 mins from major stores. Downtown Indianapolis is 25 to 30 minutes. Fishers schools are top rated, as are Carmel Schools. Almost as good are Brownsburg, Noblesville, Westfield and Zionsville. However, both Carmel and Zionsville may exceed your housing budget. A home in Fishers has the advantage of great schools, parks, shopping - with proximity to Indianapolis and Carmel for sports, concerts, plays, etc.
I can make myself available to show you neighborhoods and homes during your visit.
I understand you are looking for an area where your kids can receive the education they need to grow both academically and socially. Well rest assured those needs will be met here I am based out of westside and will say Avon, Brownsburg, and Plainfield should also be considered for their school offerings along with the housing prices that are within your range. I would want to ask a few more in depth questions before I steered you to a particular area. Such as what is considered an easy commute? And what in particular are you looking for in a school? Etc.
Is there a time we could chat so you could begin to in narrow your search to a particular side and or school district? I would be happy to be of assistance. I can be reached at email@example.com or 3173459887

I can relate to your question - I relocated to Indianapolis from Ohio seven years ago and I was fortunate to have an awesome Realtor to show me all of my options. I think the notion of "good neighborhoods" is relative...
Pike Township has awesome schools and homes that meet your sales price expectations. I'd also concur with my colleagues about Lawrence Township and I'd add Avon; however, there are indeed a lot of communities in the Indianapolis area that would make a good fit for you.
I'd be happy to show you and your family around the Greater Indianapolis area to give you good idea of what's available. Please let me know how I can help you make a successful transition to our awesome city.
My best to you,

Olive Branch Manor south of Indpls, in Greenwood is a neighborhood with lots
of children. It has a pool, playground and lots of larger homes and surprisingly
good prices. I didn't see anything exciting near the interstate in Fishers or
But things change. So, when you get the word and know for certain you are
coming to Indy, let us know. I'm sure you'll get information you can use.
Call if you want to talk.
The question you ask is very subjective and difficult to answer online. There are many communities in the Indianapolis area that would fit your description. A good approach is to find a good Realtor with whom you can consult concerning your specific needs.
Since you are coming from South Carolina, it is a good idea to visit several communities in this area to determine which ones are best suited to your lifestyle and needs. The Indianapolis metro area is a wonderful place to raise a family and I'm confident that you will find the right area for your new home.
I'd be happy to show you homes in the area as well as tour the schools and explore the various commutes with you.

As a FC Tucker agent, I specialize in Northern Marion County and Hamilton County. I have been in this area for 30 years and am extremely familiar with neighborhoods that would fit your needs. Please feel free to visit my website and call me.
I'm thinking about your situation. Yes, our children need a safe environment with
playmates nearby. The absolute best schools are in Zionsville, Carmel, Fishers,
on the north side of town and Center Grove on the south.
Commute/neighborhoods: Royal Run in Zionsville is my hands down favorite for
children/safety/price. The neighborhood has many families, nearby shopping
and new schools and pool, playground, lots of space to ride bikes. And you can
be on 65 South within a couple minutes and take it straight to downtown Indpls.
I will get back to you with info about Fishers (commute is more problematic) and
Carmel. I need to do a little research.
Thanks for asking,
