A positive business climate, schools that strive for excellence, outstanding health care facilities and excellent entertainment, recreation and shopping opportunities, are just a few of the positive advantages to living in America's Hometown.
Many newcomers, as well as long time residents, point out that Muncie offers you the advantage of a metropolitan community packaged in the beauty and slower pace of "small town" living. In fact, our community has been consistently ranked in the top 25% of the "Best Places to Live" in the nation by Money magazine and #2 in the State of Indiana by the same publication. Muncie was also honored in recent years by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce as the Outstanding City for our state.
Having an award winning university here is another definite plus. Ball State University brings us Division 1 athletic events and world-class entertainment among many other assets. And with our easy accessibility and close proximity to major metropolitan areas like Indianapolis, Chicago and Cincinnati, the sky is the limit as far as places to go and things to see and do.
