Compare Carmel to Top 10 Best Places
Five years ago Carmel was a quiet, upscale bedroom community that offered an easy 20-minute commute to downtown Indianapolis. Despite the recession, this formerly sleepy burb has since transformed itself into the ideal place to work and play.Subscribe to Money Magazine
Carmel's business district now has the second-largest concentration of office workers in Indiana and an unemployment rate that's just over half the national average.
The city also has excellent schools, a big sports and recreation center, a performing arts center, and wide bike lanes. All that, plus a variety of housing options ranging from older homes to new subdivisions, and you have an irresistible draw for families.
