This community offers an enchanting atmosphere of friendliness and fun augmented and reflected by two beautiful, accessible lakes.  The city's impressive tourism assets, diverse economic base and dynamic leadership make it a gem to any target, whether it is a business, visitor or potential resident.

It's no wonder that a city built to hug the sides of two lakes reflects so many lakeside attributes.  It is a serene community with a high quality of life.  It is safe, accommodating and never feels rushed.  It is a place where you won't feel weighed down by big city pressures, and instead have the time to enjoy what is most important in life.  While it does have this calming side to it, Monticello, like its lakes, is also a place of unbridled fun.  It is filled with the energy of youth whether it be from families playing at Indiana Beach, new leadership, or young adults starting their education at Ivy Tech.  There is both a wonderful calm and sparkling energy here.
