Bartlett Reviews

115 reviews
All Categories
Bartlett, IL is a wonderful suburb of the city of Chicago. The train station is conveniently located in town and will take you into the city in just about the same amount of time it takes to drive. The community is very friendly and accepting, and there are plenty of parks and green spaces to enjoy. Bartlett has repeatedly been named one of America's safest small towns, and while there isn't a lot of night life, it is a great place to settle down and raise a family.
Review Bartlett
Bartlett is a quiet and safe suburb with a lot of friendly people. There is a great sense of community since the area is relatively small. The only concern I have of Bartlett is the distance from the city of Chicago. Luckily there is a Metra train in downtown Bartlett. Bartlett has a great variety of restaurants to choose from. There are many local activities and programs to take advantage of. There is also a park and recreational center. Bartlett is a place where you can just relax, unwind, and enjoy the the simple things.
I love the atmosphere in Bartlett because everyone is friendly and relatively welcoming. The neighborhoods are very safe. However, it does not have many restaurants or extra activities like the surrounding suburbs do.
