Avon has grown so much in just the last few years that it amazes me to think back about my childhood. I didn't go to school here, but my father and step mother have lived here for over 15 years. I went to church here, I had several friends from youth group who went to school here, and about seventy-five percent of family lives here still! Avon has so much to offer, anywhere from jobs, schools, restaurants and more! You need groceries? There is 4 different stores for you to choose from. Want to spend the day outside? There are two parks with trails, one with a splash pad for those hot summer days, and a doggy park for those who need a large area for their furry kids to run! Being able to live and work in this community is such a privilege. To me, Avon is the heart of Hendricks County and I'm proud to be able to call it home!

I just moved to this town nine months ago due to my husbands military transfer to the area. Everyone so far has seemed very nice and friendly. What I would like to see more of is things to do. There are plenty of restaurants to eat at and places to go shopping, but for actual activities there is not, at least not that I have seen. If there are things to do, then they are not very well advertised. From what I have heard, the schools rank very high and Avon is the place to be if your child has an interest in the music department. Overall I really like the town and its surrounding area. We have even put Avon as a place to consider buying a house and starting a family in once my husbands Military career is over.

I like the mix of small town and big city that one can find in Avon. Being just west of Indianapolis, I can drive 20 minutes and be in the middle of an apple orchard or drive 20 minutes the opposite direction and be in the middle of downtown Indianapolis. As opposed to the other suburbs that surround Indy, Avon is used to seeing people flowing both ways, and has less of a small town vibe than any of the towns a little further west.
