I am starting a job in the downtown area of Indianapolis.

Is anyone familiar with the towns of Greenwood or Shelbyville?
Would you recommend these towns to live in?
Any apartment complex recommendations?

Thanks!

To get to Downtown Indy the fastest Greenwood would be best. I don't know much about the city although 90% of it is Surburban with a tiny Downtown and the Greenwood Park Mall.

Greenwood is a suburb, typical suburb at that in its truest form and that's how they want it.

It depends on what you want. Greenwood has a large, nice mall. Of course with this comes everything else: More places to eat, a slew of places to shop at, etc.. Of course this also means that the population density is higher.

Shelbyville is actually a nice town. It would be more for someone who doesn't want to live urban (as "urban" as one can get in the Indy area w/o living in downtown Indy). Shelbyville has a Walmart Supercenter and has two interstate exits (off I-74). The Walmart area has grown in recent years. They have Applebees and other similar restaurants. Shelbyville likely wouldn't have the variety that Greenwood has shopping wise, but my guess is that rent would be somewhat cheaper and traffic not as bad. However, that could be off-set by driving time and gas usage.

If you like smaller town living, Shelbyville would be better than Greenwood. However, you might also want to consider Franklin Indiana as well. A much quicker drive to the Greenwood amenities, but more of a smaller city itself.

If you are looking for a suburban feel then Greenwood. If it's small town your after then Shelbyville.
