Its true, build a railroad and towns will spring up! At least it was true in 1872 when Fishers came to be. Along side the Nickel Plate Railroad that ran from Indianapolis to Chicago. That same railroad still runs today. You can grab the train in Fishers and ride to the Indiana State Fair. If you prefer, Friday nights you can ride the train to dinner, with an open bar. If you're dining in Fishers be sure to try the Nickel Plate Diner. Where else would it be besides next to the Nickel Place Railroad?

If you want to live on the water but commute to Indianapolis then you need to consider the Geist area. Annexed into the Town of Fishers in 2008 the Geist area has some of the most expensive real estate in the Indianapolis area. Geist Reservoir is approximately 1900 acres of water, with a depth of 10 feet. In the evening you can see 10 to 20 boats gathered together for an on the water party. It's a busy place on those hot summer days, or maybe the 4th of July Fireworks on the water is your thing. Either way you won't be disappointed.
