2. I've been to the Indianapolis area quite a few times
My cousin and her husband live south of Indy in Greenwood. Personally, I wouldn't have any desire to move there. McCain won the county that Greenwood is in by a pretty big margin so it's a conservative area.

The suburbs, at least the Greenwood area, are newly developed. When I first went to visit about 7-8 years ago, it was all corn fields. Now, there are rows and rows of the same house. There's no trees so it still feels like you're living in a corn field. In fact, because of the lack of trees, 3-4 houses in my cousin's subdivison have been hit by lighting since the homes are the tallest structures.

It also feels like it take a long time to get anywhere. The housing and shopping areas seem segregated. In my area, I have a stores near my home which are within walking distance if I only need to grab a few things or if it's just a nice day for a walk. In Greenwood, it seems like there shopping areas and living areas.

My cousin and her husband seem to like it in the Indy area but it's just not for me.

I've only been to Lansing once so I couldn't provide a good assessment of the area. I remember hearing Lansing voted 75% for Obama so it's probably the better option politically.
