Carmel, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - CNN Money lists Carmel as America’s best small city in 2012.
With a population hovering above 80,000 and a short 20-minute drive to downtown Indianapolis has transformed significantly in the past five years.
Despite the recession, the formerly sleepy suburb has since transformed itself into the ideal place to work and play.
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.
