"Small Town Illinois"
I have lived in this west suburban hide-away for over 20 years. In this time, what was once a small boring town has developed into the perfect place for families and young adults alike. It has the perfect mix of new and old. There are historical buildings with roots in the town's founding in the late 1800's. These are intermingled with brand new shops within the downtown. There's really something for everyone. You can enjoy a nice day in the park with your kids or a nice romantic dinner with cocktails with your significant other. Also, when you tire of the quiet suburban charm, downtown Chicago is a quick train ride away. The surrounding suburbs also have large malls and pretty much anything you could imagine. In recent years the cost of living has sky-rocketed, though there are still many of us enjoying our simple middle class life. If you have kids they would attend a school within district U-46, the largest school district outside of Chicago. This small town is really for anyone.
