Terre Haute, Indiana. When you take a look at downtown Terre Haute, you can’t help but be taken away by its small-town charm. A town with a population of only 60,000, small is definitely a part of its attraction. If you’re a certified perfusionist looking to change it up for the quiet life but with big city options, Terre Haute just might be your new home. Let’s check out what makes this town so appealing.

No Traffic & Completely Affordable
The biggest benefit by far in moving to Terre Haute is the bang for your buck you’ll be getting. Of all the affordable towns we’ve written about, Terre Haute is definitely on the low end. This led Area Vibes to give Terre Haute a B+ on their score scale, with an A+ for amenities. The median cost of a home is only an incredible $83,800 according to bestplaces.net, making the cost less than half of the national median of $216,200. It’s truly tough to find a town in America with housing costs that are under $100,000.
On top of that, the average cost of a 1 bedroom apartment is a mere $654, well under the national average of $930 a month. And don’t forget that SpecialtyCare will require you to live within a 30-minute radius of the hospital, so no traffic in a small town opens up the possibilities for house hunting in neighborhoods further away.
Museums and Art
Terre Haute is the perfect place for history and art buffs, with the most known being the Candles and Holocaust Museum and Education Center. Founded by Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor, who was subjected to human experimentation along with her twin sister Miriam at Auschwitz. There’s also the Terre Haute Children’s Museum with a variety of interactive exhibits on science and technology. And if you’re in the mood for a collection of American art, look no further than the Swope Art Museum. The focus is on 19th and 20th-century art and admission is always free.
Close to Chicago
That’s right. Terre Haute is just over hours away from the Windy City. Think of the possibilities this brings for day trips and getaways. It’s a sport’s fan’s dream with access to the Chicago Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks, White Sox and the Cubs, not to mention all the shopping and deep dish pizza you can handle. There are also tons of annual events every year like Lollapalooza and the International Film Festival.
