Well, I guess it honestly depends on your values and needs, as well as how much money you have. As my governement teacher and a city counsel member pointed out a few weeks ago, there is not much of a middle class in this town. Most people are either very very wealthy or very very poor. Also, the town is overwhelmingly WASP-y and conservative/republican and there is not much diversity. Although if you try hard enough, as with any place, you can find your people. There is hardly any crime (mostly just substance abuse issues) here and it is a pretty safe place to live. This county also contains 101 lakes, so that is fun. Overall, it is an okay place to live, but I do not plan on living here forever.

There's great shopping opportunities, especially with the local shops. There are also fun sporting events.

Overall it is a good place to live. Angola is usually calm and quiet, however the lake community is bustling with activity during the summer. It is easy to get into and out of, except during rush hour. The city is constantly looking to improve itself, and with the help of Trine University it continues to thrive.
