Household Moving Tips to Indianapolis, Indiana
Indianapolis is the largest city in as well as the capital of the U.S. state of Indiana. Home to over 820,000 residents in the city proper, Indianapolis is one of the fastest-growing areas in the entire American Midwest and currently anchors a metropolitan area home to over two million total residents. Indiana is the 12th largest city by population in the entire United States, and recent growth, particularly in the downtown area, has led to a revitalization of the city, which was sorely needed after the dismantling of a large portion of the city’s manufacturing base. Indianapolis is located in the Rust Belt, and like many Rust Belt cities saw significant decline during the latter half of the 20th century thanks to the slow dismantling of its manufacturing base. However, today the city is attracting new residents and businesses thanks to a reformed urban planning and economic development model that has been in place since the late 1990’s. As such, Indianapolis is one of the most popular areas in the Midwest that Americans are moving to from other parts of the country.
Indianapolis’ economy today is quite diverse, which is a major reason why the city was able to weather the storm of deindustrialization as well as it did. Large economic contributions come from sectors such as education and healthcare, though historically Indianapolis was a manufacturing city, with a high amount of government jobs for a city of its size. Be that as it may, Indianapolis has diversified its economy greatly, bringing in new businesses and even entirely new sectors such as biomedical research and medical equipment development, a renewed interested in finance, and a renewed focus on high-tech industry and technological development. This diversity has brought a wealth of new residents to the area while providing enough money for the city to revitalize the downtown core; this has led to a large boom in tourism, which has also become a prominent economic sector in Indianapolis.
What this generally means for people interested in household moving to Indianapolis is that there are a lot of things to do. Since many people moving to Indianapolis for work, either for job transfers or to find work, the diverse economic landscape makes it easier for people to find work. Since the Great Recession, many a major city’s economy has suffered, both here in the U.S. and around the globe, and since the waves of deindustrialization first crashed upon the city in the late 1960’s, Indianapolis has worked hard to transform itself. What this has resulted in is a vibrant city with a unique downtown core and a sprawling metropolitan area. As a major transportation and distribution area as well, the infrastructure around the city is well-entrenched; this allows household moving companies easier access to and from many areas around Indianapolis, which helps to decrease household moving costs.
