Actually Hammond isn't that bad for a commute to O'Hare. In clear traffic it would be 45 minutes to a hour on I-294. My dad drove it when his National Guard unit was at O'Hare on 294, granted he is a lead foot, and when stopped by the state police, would get asked to slow down a little and a salute instead of ticket. Illinois is much more costly then Indiana as well.

I have lived in this area for almost 3yrs. Relocated here from California in 2007. To me it is a nice area. Quiet and peaceful, and have had no problems.

I drive through there a lot and I think it looks like a nice area. For the record, I live in south Hammond a little west of Gavit. The area has changed since we moved here years ago, but our neighborhood is quiet and though I wouldn't go walking down the alley at night, I feel safe.

Hammond in general is not a very nice place. Calumet Ave. is a pretty busy street, but I still wouldn't walk around at night, especially if you're north of 169th. Generally the further north you go the sketchier it gets. I would stay in Munster or Highland if I were you and you didn't mind driving another 5 mins.

Stay at the Hampton Inn in Munster. It is pretty nice and in a very safe area.

I'm certain it's not as nice as it was when you were a child. I went back to my childhood home and I was so disappointed in the turn out. It ruined the memory for me.
