Bloomington: FUN FACT

Indianapolis may be home to the biggest race in the world, but Bloomington is home to the Little 500, an annual bike race held at Indiana University during the third weekend of April. Every year, over 25,000 spectators attend this huge racing event, which is celebrated throughout the city. This historic race (still the largest collegiate bike race in the country) was first founded in 1951 and has continued its tradition ever since.

Arriving in Bloomington for the first time, you might expect you're in Colorado or a suburb of Seattle rather than nestled in the Midwest. Home to Indiana University, Bloomington attracts all the "ies" - techies, foodies, hippies, not to mention artists, entrepreneurs, basketball fanatics, outdoor enthusiasts and Tibetan monks (more on that below).

The community refers to itself as a "blue dot in a red state" and prides itself in being socially conscious and highly educated - one of the most educated populations in the country, actually. Bloomington Remote is a program offered through The Mill, the community's nonprofit center for co-working and entrepreneurship. If accepted, new movers will receive a three-year co-working membership to The Mill, valued at $2,200 annually. Program participants also receive concierge-level support in getting resettled and acclimated to the community. Bloomington checks the boxes for remote workers who want to give up the expense of living in a world-class community without losing the amenities they enjoy.
