Towns like Carmel and Fishers get a lot of attention for their growth in the Hoosier state. Surprisingly, neither one of them are at the top of the latest 'Boomtown' list.

What is a Boomtown?

Boomtown does not mean that there are actual explosions or anything. This type of boom is referring to the extreme growth in a town. Specifically, a boom in the population and in the business sectors.

The Biggest Boomtown in Indiana

Gobankingrates.com released the list of the biggest boomtowns in every state. Westfield, Indiana is about 200 miles north of Evansville, and it is the biggest boomtown in Indiana.

Population Growth:

    • 1 year: 9.71%
    • 5 years: 33.28%
    • 8 years: 46.53%

Westfield has a lot of new residents, and I'm sure that part of the reason people love this town is the Grand Park Events Center. It just happens to be the official home of the Indianapolis Colts Training Camp. That's kind of a big deal.
