Vibrant and Visionary
Find Chicago "crazy" and "cringe-worthy" at times? Is Los Angeles "lousy" and "lackluster" to you? Rent one of Valparaiso, Indiana’s amazing apartments and live in a city of more appealing alliterative adjectives. The city’s branding logo bears the words "vibrant" and "visionary", and it certainly demonstrates these qualities on a daily basis. Whether for its vibrant population or visionary planning, this is a city no word can do justice (other than fake ones like megatotallycool). If you’re looking for words of praise for this fine city, you might want to ask one of its wonderful residents. As of the 2010 census, it boasted a population of 31,630 citizens. Get to know your new neighbors and you’ll learn about everything from the city’s origins (for example, its name means "Vale of Paradise" in Spanish) to where to get a decent burrito. Put your flowery vocabulary to use and rent an apartment in town. Valuable and victorious come to mind. Very bodacious is also acceptable.
Food, Drink, and Fun
Did you know that popcorn magnate Orville Redenbacher once lived in Valparaiso and built a popcorn factory here? Attend one of the city’s great community events and you’ll see that the city is still popping with possibilities. Stuff your face with popcorn without having to slug through some awful rom-com and attend the aptly named Popcorn Festival. This festival, which honors Redenbacher, is a great place to meet your new neighbors (and a wonderful reminder to buy floss if you’re all out.) With racing events, a balloon launch, more than 200 arts and crafts booths, kid’s games, and more, this mouth-watering event is so fun you won’t even mind all the kernels lodged in your teeth. Need help washing down all that popcorn? Attend the Valpo Brewfest and find a beer that compliments salt and butter. This annual event, held downtown, features more than 125 styles of beer from brewers around the country. Enjoy live music, dine on great food, and get to know your neighbors at their most "spirited". Rent one of these fine apartments and fill up on fun.
Softball, Soccer, and More
Whether you need to shed a few popcorn-induced pounds or you just want to show the locals who’s boss on the basketball court, you’ll have your chance now. The city’s Parks and Recreation Department offers great parks and recreational programs all year to make sure you’re able to burn off all that butter and dunk on your new neighbors. Take Bicentennial Park for instance. Whether you’re in the mood for a breezy game of tennis with your roommate or nine rugged innings of softball with everyone on the second floor, you’ll have your chance at this great park. Looking for organized play that doesn’t involve an intense rivalry with the guy next door? Sign up for one of the city’s great adult sports programs, such as golf, softball, or volleyball. You’ll make friends and make up for your daily popcorn intake should you rent one of Valparaiso’s fine apartments. Just be sure to invite the losing team over for a movie and kettle corn.
