The Most Overlooked Town in Indiana
Out of all the towns in Indiana with charm and plenty to offer, which one do you think is the most overlooked? Well, according to Cheapism, it's none other than Chesterton.
What makes this Indiana town so special? Here's what Cheapism says:
Art galleries, festivals, antique shops, and historical sites nurture the 13,000 residents who call Chesterton home — as well as the countless visitors who pour into the region in a typical year. Chesterton boasts impressive ecological diversity in the nearby Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve, but with the glimmering lights of Chicago just 45 miles away, it's also a quick trip to the city by car or train.
