pronounced CAR-MULL. A city in Hamilton County, Indiana with a population of some 66,000 in 2007 and a posh suburb of Indianapolis. Probably the only “wealthy” community in Indiana. Many Hoosiers mistakingly believe Carmel is rich and envy its residents for some reason. It is no doubt a very nice and growing community but the truth is that there are tons of similar-sized communities around the country with way more money than Carmel could ever dream about, making it only an upper middle-class community. It’s not even the richest community in the Midwest by a long shot. In fact, a similar but smaller community of Zionsville to the immediate west could rival Carmel’s wealth per-capita, except they don’t brag about their perceived “wealth” and know how to respect individuals who have less than they do.
Hoosiers have no reason to be envious of Carmel because it is only an upper middle-class community. Many Hoosiers are jealous of its perceived wealth because they have no life of their own, but yet enough time on their hands to insult those who have worked for a living to obtain what they have. How jealous and childish. If your life sucks, then change it.

1. A city in California (pronounced CAR-MELL) south of the Bay area. Population of 4,078 in 2000.

2. A city in fast-growing Hamilton County, Indiana (pronounced CAR-MUHL)and a posh suburb of Indianapolis. It is much larger than the California city with the exact same name. It is one of the fastest-growing communities in Indiana (above 30,000 that is) and one of the fastest-growing in the Midwest. It had a population of just 28,000 in 1990, up to 38,000 in 2000, and a special census in 2007 recorded approximately 85,000. The city is experiencing growing pains. Carmel is in the process of annexing Clay Township, due to heavy growth. Its population growth requires its sewers to be upgraded. It was considered just a bedroom community for Indianapolis for many years, but things are quickly changing. It has gained thousands of jobs and population in just a few years as companies expand or even relocate to the area. It was ranked as one of America's top 25 best places to live according to Forbes Magazine in 2006.
Carmel, Indiana is a very nice community to live with good schools, a family atmosphere, low crime and a growing number of jobs. It is one of just a few towns in Indiana with a lot of rich people.

A city in Indiana just north of Indianapolis that everyone hates. People who live there hate all the stereotyping, and people who don't live there insult them as much as possible and know that they're actually just snobby rich kids. Most Carmel High School attendees are either super rich, rich, or not that rich at all. There is no medium. The only other High School in Carmel is the ridiculously small and lame University High School. Everyone who goes there is either on a minority scholarship or is ridiculously rich.

If you ask anyone who lives somewhere else, say, Zionsville or Westfield, people in Carmel are rich, stuck up snobs who like to flaunt their wealth. A lot of them are, and they know it. Most aren't really all that rich, but they like to think so because they live in Carmel. Other people who live there are probably pretty rich, but they most likely aren't all that stuck up and snobby.

Everyone outside of Carmel loves to hate on Carmel because of their cocky football team and their snobby residents. When people enter Carmel they often make jokes such as, "Hey, I think I need to upgrade to the new iPhone and buy a car that looks much more expensive than it really is."

In all fairness, people either like or hate Carmel. To be honest, a lot of the rich people there aren't all that bad, even a decent amount of University kids, but some of them are stereotypical snobby Carmel kids that makes you proud you don't live there.
"Oh god yes, we get to play Carmel's football team. I can't wait to see that idiotic stuck up fan base so we can laugh at them behind their backs."

"Look at that kid, he's obviously from Carmel, he has a Mercedes and a $5000 watch."

"I wish people would stop associating me with all those other idiots in Carmel." "Yeah, well just look at your house, it's at least $2 million."

The place you go to fail at life and lose all your friends. It's the place where numerous murders and rapes occur.
Dude I'm so low right now, I'm going to Carmel
