"Naperville, absolutely!"

An amazing town that has evolved from a sleepy farm town. It offers something for everyone, with numerous treasures including Centennial Beach, our beloved Riverwalk, the Century Walk Art displayed throughout town, free parking, both franchises and boutique shopping, casual and fine dining, phenomenal Park District, School Districts extraordinaire, a plentitude of greenspaces, parks, biking trails, walking/running trails, dog parks and more, award winning library system, outstanding available medical services, home to North Central College, and numerous college satellite schools for continuing education for all ages, located on the BNSF train line making it a short jaunt to Chicago. We are a diverse community with quick access to I-88, I-355 and I-55. Once you've tried it, you'll hate to leave it.

I have lived here for almost 30 years, and can't imagine living anywhere else. Our children were all born and raised in this town, and I am SO thankful for the OUTSTANDING education and life experiences they have received as a result of the town offering an invaluable public education system. All three children graduated college 2008-2012 and were employed during a hard economy either before they graduated or within 6 mos of graduating, finding employment within their field and garnering 401Ks and Medical benefits. Kudos to our educators.

Some people will say the taxes are high, but I would challenge anyone comparing towns. Compare what you are paying to what you get for your taxes. There is definitely a bang for your buck in Naperville.
