Arbor Hill in Highland

Shady Lawn in Crown Point

When it comes to safety, Crown Point takes the lead. Shady Lawn is one of the best neighborhoods for young families to settle down. It’s considered to be a great place to raise children, too, since the safety rating is high and there are many excellent schools in the area. This neighborhood is well-known for having many three to four-bedroom homes, perfect for families that plan on growing and need extra room. Shady Lawn is located close to Crown Point’s bustling downtown area. You can’t go wrong when you choose to live in a neighborhood in Crown Point. 

Krietzburg in St. John

St. John is a diverse community featuring some of the safest neighborhoods in Northwest Indiana, including Krietzburg, a subdivision consisting of medium to large homes. In 2013, it was designated the best place to raise kids in the entire state by Bloomberg Businessweek. St. John has won numerous awards for safety, education and livability. People of all ages will love living in St. John as it has a wide variety of restaurants, entertainment, churches and more. Krietzburg and surrounding neighborhoods are perfectly nestled between some major attractions, such as Chicago, the Shrine of Christ’s Passion and the shores of Lake Michigan. 

Latitude in Winfield 

If you are looking for a place that’s up-and-coming, Winfield is for you. Winfield is a small community located east of Crown Point. There are many new neighborhoods being built at the moment, meaning it’s prime time for the housing market here. For example. Latitude is a wonderful community since there are many plots still available for purchase. This neighborhood has the best of both worlds: it’s located in the quieter countryside but is within driving distance to nearby cities and towns. 

Maynard in Munster

Maynard is a neighborhood with so much to offer. It’s well known for its famous brewery, Three Floyds. As well as its abundant arts scene. When you live in Maynard, you’ll have easy access to the Center for Visual and Performing Arts, as well as Centennial Park and Golf Course. With so much to do, you and your family will love living in this welcoming community. What makes Maynard special is that it is perfect for families that want to live near Chicago but would rather avoid the busier communities closer by.
