Most underrated suburb in all of IL. Great schools, no crime, tons of commerce and nightlife.. I find it a joke that Niche has it listed below it's neighboring towns, when residents from those towns envy Bloomingdale! I know, I was one. Bloomingdale has a plethora of 6000sq ft homes+(Los Lagos) ..it has 2 large subdivisions of 3500+ sq ft homes (Bloomfield Club and Founders Pointe).. it has a multitude of starter homes 1500-2500 sq ft (West Lake)... if your looking to move to an area that has it all, look no further.
Review Bloomingdale
I am only 18 years old and entering my freshman year of college at Iowa State University and my current living situation is one that my parents chose before I was born. However, I would never want to grow up anywhere else. To say that Bloomingdale is a great place to live would be an understatement. When I get married and have children I want them to grow up here and experience the safe, fun, kid friendly atmosphere and the amazing school system. I have never felt unsafe in my own home due to the neighborhood, and I am very lucky to be be able to say that because not everyone in our neighboring communities can say that. I see a very bright future for this area. Right now the area is filled with kids my age, getting ready to move out and start their own lives. Because of the close friendships I have made with those young adults, I know that they feel the same way I do in that moving back to Bloomingdale to start a family is in the plans for the future. Not to mention the shops and restaurants that have recently moved it to add great business and add to the wonderful atmosphere. I can not wait to see Bloomingdale prosper.
The safety of Bloomingdale is overwhelmingly high. The police are always out and about. You can't go down any busy road without seeing at least 1. The prevalence of crime is very minimal. I have been a citizen of Bloomingdale for 18 years and the only crimes I can recall are a bank robbery (which was stopped) and a few home robberies. However, with the home robberies, the police were high alert mode and the scare stopped. My concerns for crime and safety in Bloomingdale are very small. I always feel safe walking on the streets, even at night.
