I will be graduating from a university in Chicago in May 2013. I have already received and accepted an offer from a corporation in Frankfort, IN. I want to find a place to live that is "near" work meaning a commute that is at the most 45ish minutes. Since I will still be 21 when I move, it would be nice to be close to fun things to do on the weekends, bars, and restaurants. Also, it would be really nice to be around other young college graduates.

I've only been to Indiana twice and Frankfort once and really need help finding a good area to live in.

Congrats on the job! My D is at a similar stage of life as you are so I kind of understand what you want to find. I don't think Frankfort would be the fun place to be at your age. Since you don't mind a commute you could look in West Lafayette, closer to Purdue Univ. You'll find a lot more other people your age there and some of the fun things you're looking for there.

It's a bit longer commute, but you also could look into Carmel, IN. That put's you closer to downtown Indianapolis and Broad Ripple. It's a little farther drive than 45 minutes--about 50 or so according to google.

I agree with rrah. You wont want to live in Frankfort. But both Lafayette and West Lafayette would have more to offer. If you lived on the northside of Indianapolis, near Broad Ripple maybe, that'd give you more options in terms of a social setting. If you have any questions at all....please feel free to ask. Good luck!
