Review Burr Ridge
Although it is a very spread out area, I think that the community of people still find ways to connect. I think that this area allows families to obtain the beauty of nature, while staying within a strong community of people. Twenty minutes from the City of Chicago, although Burr Ridge itself does not have an expansive night life, the city offers endless options of fun activities. Overall, I thoroughly enjoy this area and think it offers a lot to an expanding family.
I liked that it was a quiet, calm place to live. The houses aren't on top of each other and there are a lot of trees!
The main problem with accessing the businesses in this area is transportation. It's impossible to get around without a car. There's no library and only a small bookstore in the immediate area-- the nearest big bookstore is about 25 minutes by car. There are some clothing stores in the area, but otherwise not much. Very few independently owned businesses. Another problem is the lack of local gathering places--coffee shops, bars, etc. There's pretty much only a Starbucks and some restaurant bars.
