5 Benefits of Moving from Chicago to Indianapolis 

From the Windy City to The Crossroads of America, here are five reasons to move from Chicago to Indianapolis: 

Fewer People 

Chicago is home to more than 2.7 million people. While Indianapolis is the most populous city in Indiana, it only has a population of about 873,000 people. Enjoy all that a big city has to offer without as many crowds. 

Milder Winters 

Tired of brutally cold winters? You’ll still experience freezing temperatures in Indy, but there will be less snow. Chicago gets an average of 37 inches of snow per year while Indianapolis receives 22 inches. So still pack your snow shovel and winter boots, but don’t expect to use them as often.  

Lower Cost of Living 

Get more for your money in Indianapolis! One of the best benefits of moving to Indy is the city’s lower cost of living. According to Sperling’s Best Places, Chicago is 34% more expensive than Indianapolis. In Chicago, the median price of a home is $223,000, but in Indy, it’s $135,200. That’s an $87,800 difference! You’ll also pay less for food, healthcare, housing, utilities and transportation. 

Shorter Commutes  

Compared to Chicago, traffic in Indiana is nothing. The 2018 INRIX Traffic Scorecard found that Chicagoans lose 138 hours per year in congestion, but Indy drivers only lose 59 hours. That’s 79 more hours each year to spend at home, with family and friends, or out having fun. 

Home of the Indianapolis 500 

If there’s one major thing to know about your new city, it’s that it’s home to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This famous venue hosts the world’s largest single-day event: the Indianapolis 500. Join 400,000 other people as you watch professional drivers turn laps at 230 miles per hour. It’s an unforgettable experience!
