Welcome to Fishers
Access city excitement from the comforts of home
Just north of Indianapolis lies the city of Fishers, where urban amenities give way to a suburban setting. Fishers has gained notoriety as publications like Money Magazine have named it one of the best places to live in the United States.
The western part of town has a vintage Midwestern feel and features abundant trees, greenery, and public spaces. Downtown is hip, modern, and expanding with apartments, luxury townhomes, and condos. The cultural center of Fishers is the Nickel Plate District, where shopping and fine dining coexist with institutions like the AMP, a local theater. Meanwhile, the suburban east side of Fishers is popular with families for its attractive streets and highly regarded school system.
For such an unassuming city, Fishers has an excellent infrastructure comprising carefully planned and well-maintained roads that sustain a constant traffic flow. Parks and recreational areas are peppered throughout the city, providing residents with places to get out into nature. Careful urban planning and steady demand ensure Fishers will retain its current mixture of culture, recreation, and home life.
