Antioch Reviews

35 reviews
All Categories
Depending on the person, this area could be ideal or it could be a bore. It is far away from most things; you have to drive at least 15 minutes even to get to Walmart. I moved here from a city and city life is more for me, but I know some people who love it here. If you don't like city life but still want to be close to things, Antioch is ideal. It is in the district of an average high school and (in my opinion) a really good community college. This town also has a commuter train station that leads to Chicago, so if you work down there or just enjoy city life that is always a plus. Also, the public library offers good resources. Overall, pretty quiet town.
Review Antioch
I have lived in Antioch for almost 14 years, it's a very safe town. However, diversity is very low and there are a lot of drug problems among the high school students. Great teachers at the high school, a lot of administration who are trying to help as much as they can.
The crime rate is pretty low. Of course there are some robberies and other things, but I generally feel very safe in this town. The only complaint I have is that it is dark; the streets are not very well lit. Walking at night is definitely a challenge and could even be considered unsafe. The police are very responsive, though.
