Lansing vs. Indianapolis IN relocation insight?
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Fri May-01-09 10:52 AM by dmallind
I'm quietly confident of having this choice for my next relocation (maybe not of course!) so I thought I'd post in both IN and MI forums and see what I get. I've done the usual due diligence at city-data and bestplaces so I know the stats, but they only tell part of the picture. I've visited both places but spent more time in Lansing due to former in-laws living there. I'm more looking for informed social context. Comparisons would be great if you know both places but just MI insight more than appreciated. Pros/Cons/social environment etc would be much appreciated

US: empty nesters, upper middle income (low six figures), moderate Dems both, early 40's, suburban/outer urban by preference (large yard for dog). Would be looking at typical Okemos/Holt/East Lansing areas. Work would be pretty close to this. Not too artsy in interests but we like the usual amenities within reasonable distance. Not into keeping up with Joneses or coffee klatch socializing. A bit on the white-bread side but without the fake bonhomie that often goes with it. Irreligious. More interested in discussing politics than little Bobby's grades.

Thanks for anything guys.
