Big City Vs. Small Town Living: Is it Worth the Price?

I think we all have friends that have left where they grew up to pursue big-city dreams. I know people that have moved to Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. Sometimes it's everything they wanted, and sometimes they quickly realize that there's no place like home. Maybe you have been that person yourself, dying to leave your town for somewhere a little more glamorous. I, however, am going to be the one explaining at my high school reunion that I left Denver Colorado to go live in tiny midwest towns in Missouri, Indiana, and Kansas. That is a long story that I share more about in this blog .  For today I want to dive into the cost of living comparison between small towns and big cities. I'll preface by clarifying that I am in no way a financial analyst, a real estate agent, or an expert on the economy. I'm just a girl that has lived in towns of all sizes, and I'm fascinated with the difference your location can make in your quality of life. I'll s

10 Fort Wayne Food Trucks to Eat at This Summer

The taqueria serves as a gathering place for people of the community to share stories and chismes (gossip). Our offerings will encompass some Los Angeles street style fare and other globally inspired

Tipton County Indiana

You might have noticed by now that we are big fans of small towns. Quiet neighborhoods, minimal traffic, unique shops--count us in! What'sUp 24/7 is all about connecting communities and showing off their value. So here's a highlight one of our newest Early Adopting Partners, Tipton County, Indiana. Kegan Schmicker is the executive director of the Tipton County Chamber of Commerce. Kegan sees his community through a unique lens because he is both a newcomer and a very involved citizen. He talked me through some of the best that Tipton County has to offer. Put Down Roots in Tipton County One of the first things Kegan mentioned was how welcoming the community is. Small towns can hold the stigma of being unwelcoming to outsiders, but you won't find that to be true in Tipton. Not only did Kegan feel very welcomed after moving there, but he was able to join the Chamber of Commerce just 6 months after he arrived. With young families looking for their first home, affordability of h
