Valpo is a nice town, the County Seat of Porter County. Nice homes, good schools, decent shopping and restaurants.

Where is his land located?

I love valparaiso, I miss it sometimes. They have a great downtown district, i've done a photoshoot there for a magazine for teens and it was perfect. It's a great town for younger parents and older people alike. It has a college feel but with lots of history and older couples who have lived there all their life. They have great schools and Valpo Univ is a great college. The subdivisions are very kid friendly a lot of valpo is middle/upper middle class. A lot of people I know who live there travel to Chicago for work. My boyfriend and I moved from Valpo/Portage to Whiting to cut down travel time to Chicago for our jobs.

I love Valpo! If I could afford the area, it has grown quite a bit I would move back there in a heartbeat! I grew up there and didn't leave the area until I was around 20. The people are friendly, diverse, the school system is great, lots of culture and history in the area because of the university and I think I am just partial because it was my old stomping grounds. There's some great shopping out there now -- it wasn't really there when I was a kid, it really has developed. It still hasn't lost it's sense of small town Indiana by it's locally run drive in theater -- I've been going since I was a kid -- and rootbeer stands. I would recommend everyone heading back that way if they can afford it.

Looks like the NICT runs from South Bend Airport all the way into Chicago, so you should certainly be able to get close on both ends. Perhaps with the help of a taxi on the Valpo side. Here's the link:

Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (http://www.nictd.com/service/stations.htm#RANDOLPH%20STREET%20(Chicago - broken link))

I also saw in another thread where you were asking for synagogues in the area. Here's a listing:
