Unfortunatly, while a great place for liberals, Bloomington does have it's flaws. Gasoline here is an average of ten cents higher than the entire midwestern united states. I once drove from Bloomington to Denver and didn't see gas any more expensive than in Bloomington.
Also, due to the large population of collage students, traffic is a nightmare during the school year, and it's always better to drive around the south side of town than to cut through campus. In the summer, the students leave, traffic subsides, and the residents timidly emerge from the shelter of their houses and go back to their lives.
Unfortunatly, without collage students to worry about, the police department can focus all of their energy on going after residents, so don't expect to get away with anything while the students are gone.
Overall, I reccomend it if you already live in Indiana and want to get the fuck out of some shithole like Gary, but don't move here from any other state.
Resident 2: Dude, totally.
Resident 1: Totally, Bloomington is so groovy.
-The Indiana Hoosiers have won 7 Soccer and 5 Basketball National Championships.
-John "Cougar" Mellencamp is Bloomington's most celebrated resident. Word around town is that he's a total dickhead to everyone with whom he comes in contact.
-The center of US population is a distinction which has not fallen within the incorporated area of any city since it was located in Bloomington, in 1910.
