Although, Munster seems to stand-out a bit more because it is very accessible to major expressways and you have several shoping options. You may go to Hobart Mall(Merrilville) or Orland mall in Illinois.

Community Hospital has a good rep.

Several nice areas to live in if you are considering moving and renting.

Good luck. I am a Realtor and can send you more info. By the way, Chicago's Downtown shopping district - "Water Tower" is accessible on the "South Shore line".

Orland Mall is a bit far you know. There are 2 other malls in Illinois closer to Munster than Orland. One at 159th and Torrance and another on Lincoln Hwy and Cicero. However if you are white, you may not like these malls that much.

A mall is a mall, what does color have to do with anything?

Well, its the stores. I'm not trying to be racist, it's just that whites in IL don't realy like these malls.

First off I have want to say that I myself don't live in munster but I have several family members as well as friends to do. One HUGE thing you need to keep in mind is that MUNSTER was one of the towns that sufferd the most from the floods that hit NW indiana last year (August -September 08) almost all of munster was under water. Be careful when buying in munster.... I honestly feel it's not worth it!

I moved to Munster, with my family, about five years ago. I am originally from the East coast, and have spent my adult life mostly in DC and Miami. Overall, we are very happy with Munster. The schools are good, Chicago is close, and the people are friendly. I haven't noticed the snobby attitudes that some others have mentioned. Also, there is some diversity here. There's a good hospital in town, and that always attracts people of different backgrounds.

As far as the flooding goes, it was all in one area (North of Ridge Road). I don't think that flooding is a concern outside of that one flood zone near the river.

If you're not going to use the public schools in Munster, you can get a little more bang for your buck housing-wise in Schererville, Dyer and St. John.
