Working in Bensenville
The village is very homely. Our facilities may not be the most modern or the most expensive, but our community is close-knit. The leisure centers and the parks not only bring our neighborhoods together, but bring in neighborhoods from other towns, as well! This was a diverse, welcoming, and safe place to grow up. I only hope to see more investment in our educational facilities to help new generations enjoy growing up here, too.
I lived in Bensenville for 13 years until mid 2017. First off, remember it's near O'Hare airport so you have to get used to the planes. It's a nice suburb, not great. They have great summer concerts every Wednesday. It is conveniently located so you have access to stores, train, expressway, airport etc. Some neighborhoods (friendliness, etc.) are better than others like every other suburb. However, this suburb has more of a city feel since the airport expansion and changes that have come along with it. My daughter has been out of school for years, but school was okay.
Affordable town, that sometimes gets a bad rap as it’s close to the airport and has had on and off times where English would be considered the language of most of its residents. All in all though, Bensenville is affordable, it’s close to the city and safer than most cities this close to Chicago or an airport. Schools are way better than the ratings give it credit for. Charming spots like Gina’s hotdogs, Mario’s Deli, have been staples for years.. there’s a new green st restaurant a nice salon and concerts regularly in their downtown in summers. Not sure I could say I’d voluntarily raise a family here, but if it was my only option I wouldn’t be upset.. think poor man’s Elmhurst.
