Kane county offers experiences for everyone with reasonable driving times. There are many restaurants, retail stores, movie theaters, bowling alleys, hiking trails, and golf courses. Growing up, I received excellent education which allowed me to pursue a college of my choice. Also, it is a very safe community which parents enjoy raising children in.

It's wonerful, I'm current college student and resident of Kane county. It safe and the home of the famous minor league team the Northwestern Medicine Kane County Cougars.
living for about three years in kane county has been very comfortable according to environment, neighbors around the house and lots of outside activity to do. walking/driving late at night always seems scary but since I moved to Kane county I never felt scared. lots of grocery shop, clinics and stores nearby house makes it lot easier for daily routines. its been a pleasure living in this county I liked the most from DuPage county.
