The education level of this small town of nearly 27,000 rivals that of Carmel. Of Zionsville population, 97% have completed high school, and 69% possess a Bachelor’s degree. Zionsville has an excellent public school system. Perhaps this is why many of the residents go on to pursue post-secondary educations. With very low violent and property crime rate and emphasis on education, this is a great place to raise as family. The median annual income is over $100,000 – much higher than places like South Bend or Bloomington. However, owning property is much more expensive here. The median cost of a home is well above $300,000. The level of unemployment and poverty is one of the lowest in the state. While there’s not a whole lot to do here, this peaceful town has a small winery, nature center, and farmers’ market.
