CNN's Money Magazine Ranked Carmel,IN #1
It's easy to see why Carmel has made number one on this list of 100 small cities. With the excellent schools, booming Arts & Design District, and the newly errected Palladium theater, Carmel has something for everyone. The Monon Trail overs year-round outdoor activities, and with businesses and restaurants located on the trail, it's easy access for those wanting to make a day trip to another town. Downtown Carmel has recently been revamped with a plethora of new businesses, galleries, and restaurants.
But besides all of the new construction and buzz about the town, Carmel remains a great place to live, work, and raise a family.
