It may be that the word “suburb” brings about pictures of cookie cutter homes, strip malls, and a town full of Stepford-wife types. Often there is a want for the ease of having what’s needed nearby, with the appeal and personality of a small town. Enter, the city of Westfield, Indiana.
“We are thrilled to attract families to Westfield,” stated Mayor Andy Cook. “The amenities, schools and quality of life in Westfield are clearly what families are looking for when deciding where to put down roots.” Westfield, declared WalletHub’s Best Small City of 2016 and 2017’s 3rd Best City to Raise a Family in Indiana, is becoming a beloved place to call home for people from near and far. “Families continue to come to Westfield not just from other places in Indiana, but from all over the country,” Mayor Andy Cook said.
Several commuters choose Westfield because of its central location. With highway access it’s a quick trip to Carmel, and just about anywhere else one would want to go. It’s the best choice for those looking for a north side address, but travel often.
Hoping for a job in Westfield? “Westfield, IN is the best-field when it comes to jobs; it came in 3rd for the best cities for jobs in Indiana. A suburb of Indianapolis, Westfield boasts a low unemployment rate (5th overall) and strong future job growth (8th),” as stated in a study done by Zippia.

There are so many local restaurants nearby! With neighborhood boutiques, parks, walking trails like the Midland Trail, breweries, and city events, entertainment is around every corner.
At the heart of it all is downtown Westfield and Union Street. Just off the highway in the heart of Westfield, you’ll find several locally owned shops & restaurants.

Near both J.C. Hart Company Communities is Union Street Flowers. “I love being a part of the Westfield community. I feel like everybody is supportive of each other. it’s nice to have encouragement from other business owners. They want everybody else to do well. My mom and I have lived in Westfield our whole lives. We love Westfield. There is a lot of growth happening and a lot of unique businesses popping up.
