Hobart Indiana

Hobart Indiana is one of the most popular communities of NW Indiana to live in and its 30,000 residents will attest to that! It’s one of those places in Lake County that once people live here, they never leave. Although primarily residential, the retail corridor around Southlake Mall is also in The City of Hobart.

One of the reasons is Lake George, the centerpiece of Hobart, meandering thru the town, giving way to all sorts of outdoor fun along the lakefront.   Fishing, kayaking, and live musical outdoor entertainment always surround the lake in the summer.

Along the edge of Lake George, the thriving downtown area keeps the community alive with a small town feel. In fact, it has recently become a golf cart community, allowing golf carts on the minor roadways, bringing more residents into downtown Hobart.
