Located just five miles west of Indianapolis, Avon delivers a small-town, family-oriented vibe just a short distance away from the car-racing capital of the U.S.
Its high graduation rate and low crime are attractive, and its real estate is affordable: The median home sale price was $184,359.
Avon’s music traditions have also put it on the map. With multiple championships under its belt, Avon High School’s marching band is one of the best in the state. Singer-songwriter Natalie Walker, whose music has been featured on Ugly Betty and Grey’s Anatomy, is an Avon High School alumna.
With over 180 acres of parkland and a smoking ban in place throughout the town, Avon is committed to healthy living. Residents can also stroll walking trails at Avon Town Hall Park, which features a nine-acre lake and two ponds, or visit the larger Washington Township Park, home to seasonal festivals, including the Hendricks County Ribfest and Avon Balloon Glow. —Gabriela Fernandez
