Comfortably situated in Lake County, Indiana, Hammond is a city that is part of the Chicago metropolitan area. The population in 2010 was at 80,000 people, making it the most populous city in Lake County, trumping Gary, the previous owner of the title. Hammond houses are typically older homes with plenty of historical charm and prices that are hard to beat.

Hammond has a range of elevation moving from 577 feet to 610 feet. The city is within the boundaries of what was formerly known as Lake Chicago, and most of the city rests on top of a sandy soil with a layer of black topsoil. Most of the exposed sand has already been removed for industrial production purposes, and the city boasts close proximities to several rivers and lakes. Grand Calumet River, Lake Michigan, Little Calumet River, and Wolf Lake all find a part of themselves within Hammond's city limits, with Lake George and Oxbow Lake finding themselves entirely encompassed by Hammond. Nearby towns include Illinois cities of Chicago and Lansing and Indiana cities of Gary and Highland.

Most of the city's streets are laid out in a similar grid pattern to Chicago's streets. Hammond has a particular numbering system that other cities and towns in Northwest Indiana also use. Commuter rail lines like the South Shore Line and the national passenger rail system called Amtrak provide easy routes for Hammond citizens to take in moving from place to place. Bus transit is operated by the Northwest Indiana Regional Bus Authority, which was previously provided by the Hammond Transit System. The Franciscan St. Margaret Health hospital on Stateline Road founded in 1898 is Hammond's main hospital, providing excellent healthcare and an accredited chest pain center for nearby residents. Public education is abundant and easy to access with many high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools readily available across the city alongside of private schools and one charter school. Universities include the Hyles Anderson College, Kaplan, Purdue, and the Calumet College of St. Joseph.
