Hi! There are many nice areas in Northwest Indiana in which to move. Northwest Indiana has it's share of entertainment, restaurants and shopping.
Many of our local towns have community theatre groups. In Munster you'll find the Munster Center for Visual and Performing Arts, Merrillville hosts the Ross Music Theatre, Valparaiso has the Memorial Opera House and the Chicago Street Theatre. Valparaiso University also hosts many student and community events. Hobart has the Radisson Plaza which hosts community events and celebrity concerts.

In Crown Point you will find the Northwest Indiana Symphony. Chesterton offers the Dunes State Park if you like the outdoors. The Dunes State Park hosts many events throughout the year from nature to art shows. You are only an hour from Chicago whether you are traveling from Valparaiso or Crown Point.

I'd love to help you with your home search. Please call me any time if you have any questions : 219-730-3502

Hello! My wife and I recently moved our family to Munster primarily because of the schools. It is a very nice community with bicycle trails, parks and a great community pool. Munster high school is top rated in lake county and Wilbur Wright middle school has an excellent rating as well. Feel free to contact me for additional information or to help you find a home that suits your families needs.

If you are looking to stay within 10 minutes of work and 30 minutes from Chicago, then Munster is the town with the highest rated schools that meets your convenience criteria. You can buy a very nice home in that price range. My office is in Hammond near PUC. You should come see me when you're in town!

Feel free to contact me via email or call anytime on my cell.
