Addison a great place with so many friendly faces. Everything that you could possibly need is in the heart and outskirts of addison. No matter where you go you can always find a great place to shop at or walk around. Addison is also filled with so many parks that it is very family friendly. Weekly they have concerts for the whole family to enjoy. All the major stores and restaurants you can imagine are here in addison. The schools there are great and amazing. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I always travel to Addison as that is where the houses of all my friends and family are located. After moving to Lombard I realized what a special town ,and such a diverse town also, we have in our state.

i love the city , it has a natural ebb and flow about it .....No SERIOUSLY IT DOES, i lived in this city for the last 5 years and i also live here in Addison back in the 1990's when it was somewhat under construction and i had a child that went to the elementary schools that were somewhat under renovation as well. Needless to say that the academic programs were being developed and at that particular time were up to par and very accommodating to me and my child's need, and even since then has tremendously improved the quality of education and child development, obviously i am an adult that is currently in my middle years and am looking for my furthering of my educational development .... But back to the city of Addison, if i could sum it up in a sentence.... I THINK THAT ADDISON IS AN TRULY AWESOME PLACE TO LIVE AND RAISE A FAMILY, SINCERELY .. :)
I have been living in Addison IL for about 12 years now. I love how friendly and caring everyone in the community is. There is multiple activities and events to attend no matter of age, For example, every Thursday in the summer, the village has a rock and roll night. This event is a place to eat and have a good time while watching a live band. The local schools do a amazing job in teaching the criteria that is needed for everyday life in the world. The teachers in Addison not only educate about a certain subject , but how to be successful in life no matter what difficulties come along the way. Though Addison is a amazing community, we need to start more club teams for sports. I believe this ,because as an athlete there are not a lot of clubs to improve in a sport. Overall, I love living in Addison and it has been such an amazing place to grow up and learn everything I need for college and everything ahead in my life.
