Plainfield, Indiana is located in Hendricks County,it's population as of 2006, was 24,734 up from the 18,000 that it was when I moved here in October of 2000. I love Hendricks County! Although I grew up in San Diego, California. You might say, as most people do upon learning this fact, "why in the world would you move here from California?" well, it was for a man! Yes, it was not for the beauty that is Indiana! Since getting here though I have learned about Indiana and have grown to love it as have my 3 children.
There are so many reason to love Plainfield! I can name a few............Plainfield is home to Metropolis,the largest mall on the west side of Indianapolis. I watched as Metropolis was being built, waited in anticipation for the boutiques that were going in. Boutiques like Ann Taylor and Victoria's Secret to name a couple. This IS a outdoor mall but it is NOT a outlet mall or a stripmall. These are, for the most part, higher end stores and the atmosphere is wonderful! There is always music playing on the speakers, the tone of the mall is fun and exciting! There are alot of sounds,lights and ACTION! In the winter time, there are many beautiful lights and music and outdoor fires are lite around the mall, like little outdoor fireplaces. There is a RAVE theater playing all of the latest movies and there are several dining venues including Claddaughs and Stone Creek. They even have valet parking! If you have not visited Metropolis yet, please do so, soon. There is so much more that I could say but I will leave it to you to come on over and discover the wonders that are Metropolis for yourself.
Plainfield is also home to a beautiful aquatic center, with pools and water slides as well as outdoor basketball courts and a gym! There are walking and riding trails that interconnect through out the town.
Needless to say my family enjoys Plainfield! We now call Indiana "home" and Plainfield is one of the towns that we enjoy spending our time in. We live about 20 miles East of Plainfield yet we go to Plainfield for most all of our daily needs. We also enjoy going to Hummel Park for fireworks every 4th of July.
Plainfield is home to 2 major Business parks, Plainfield is a great place to start a new business!
Plainfield also has a large spiritual community. Whatever your choice of worship is you are bound to find a place of worship to accommodate you and your family. If you choose to serve the Lord Plainfield is a great place to do it!
Plainfield is indeed, a "Community of Values", a great place to live, work, worship, and play. On top of all that, it is just a short 15 minute commute to downtown Indianapolis.
What do you have to lose? Come on over for a visit, stay awhile, visit Metropolis and get some shopping done,see a movie or dine in a excellent restaurant! Whatever you choose to do you are likely to have a wonderful time doing it!
Hope to see you around Plainfield soon!
