Monticello is an extraordinary city where our lakes are more than a landscape, they are an all-encompassing lifestyle. Located halfway between Indianapolis and Chicago, Monticello is home to Indiana Beach, one of the State of Indiana’s premier attractions.
The city’s impressive tourism assets, diverse economic base and dynamic leadership make it a gem to any target, whether it be a business, visitor or potential resident.
Businesses appreciate the quality of life, higher educational opportunities, impressive healthcare and dedicated workforce the city delivers. Visitors are thrilled by the activities at Indiana Beach, engaged by outdoor recreational opportunities and charmed by the community’s hospitable atmosphere. For residents, it is the lure of the water and the comfort and support of small community life that is attractive.
Monticello is a serene community safe and accommodating with a high quality of life. It is a place where you won’t feel weighed down by big city pressures. Instead, you will have time to enjoy what is truly important in life.
While Monticello has this calming side, the City of Monticello, like its lakes, is also a place of unbridled fun. It is filled with energetic families playing at Indiana Beach, new vibrant leadership and young adults starting their education at Ivy Tech. There is both a wonderful calm and sparkling energy in Monticello.
On behalf of the Greater Monticello Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau, we extend an invitation to spend a day, a week or a lifetime in Monticello. As you explore the pages of this book and learn about our wonderful city, you will discover a community you’ll want to call “home.”
The Greater Monticello Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau offers area businesses the strength of a unified organization that works toward mutual business and community goals. The strength of our organization lies in the vision and spirit of our dedicated members.
Monticello offers an enchanting atmosphere of friendliness and fun, augmented and reflected by two beautiful, accessible lakes. It is no wonder that a city built to hug the sides of two lakes reflects so many lakeside attributes.
Welcome to Monticello…life with a splash.
