Pretty nice looking Big Ten college town (if you like that sort of thing).

Thanks.

I'll admit to being a wee bit disappointed with downtown Bloomington when I visited, but the IU campus looks very nicely put together, particularly in the landscaping/greenery department. The surrounding area, particularly to the south, is quite nice as well.

I was telling my wife the same thing. She's never seen that movie. I have lived in Indianapolis since 1993 and made my very first trip to Bloomington last month. I really liked it. We had dinner at Mother Bear's Pizza and saw Chris Hardwick perform at the Comedy Attic. We will definitely be back.

Yep you know Bloomington has arrive when they have a Chico's, might as well mention Urban Outfitters too.


Nice little town, although I always find it hard to think of Indiana as nice for some strange reason. Thanks for sharing, you never disappoint, always quality work.

IU is one of those amazing campuses of a major, flagship public university that looks more like an elite private university.

IU has kept its scale like so few others. This is one of the most gorgeous, drop dead campuses in the nation, a real source of pride for the Big Ten or Big Eleven or is it the Not So Sweet Sixteen. Who knows?

but damned pretty.

Alfred Kinsey would approve, even if this had nothing to do with the Human Reproductive system.
