Thanks for the interest in the Plainfield/Avon area. I have lived in the area all my life and feel they are both great communities. They two communities are very different however. I would say that both communities offer great environments to live, raise a family and retire to. Being on the Westside of Indy, they still have a rural feel to them and there is still quite a bit of farmland in the area. Both communities are noted for their excellent schools in terms of academics, athletics and extra-curricular activities.

Plainfield is an established town that has seen a lot of growth over the past several years. There is a wide variety of shopping in town that is easily accessible from all the residential areas. Metropolis is a nice outdoor shopping mall in addition to strip mall shopping anchored by stores such as Wal-Mart, Target and Kohl's. Plainfield prides itself on it's parks and trails system and aquatic/recreation center and has that real "hometown" feel.

The Avon community is made up of subdivisions and shopping. The US 36 corridor is lined with just about any type of shopping or eating establishment you could want. They have several of the "big box" stores as anchors in strip malls which offer a huge variety of shopping opportunities. They have have a large number of restaurants. The Avon community shows a lot of support for their youth through their youth sports program and school athletics and band programs.

Are you planning a visit to the area soon? Both communities offer a variety of festivals and events throughout the year. If you would like more information on both of these towns, visit my website at for links to the town websites. You will find the links located at the bottom of my homepage. Also, if you have any questions about housing or anything else about the communities feel free to contact me, I will be more than happy to answer them for you. Also feel free to follow the home search link on my page to find available homes in the Plainfield/Avon area.

Wow! I cannot believe this question was overlooked by us because it is an easy one to answer.
YES, it is a great place for seniors. There are neighborhoods and communities that are focused on senior living, golf course communities, senior activities and most importantly a diverse group of people outside of the senior community. Perhaps you may or may not have heard of Fearrington Village, Meadowmont or Carolina Meadows, just to name a few. If you are not inclined to live in a neighborhood focused on retirees, you will have many other wonderful options.
If you are still considering making the move I would be happy to send you a relocation package with the information you are looking for.
My apologies that you were overlooked for so long.
