Clarendon Hills is a very cute town and has lots to offer! Very safe, great schools, cute downtown, very family-friendly. Does lack diversity and nightlife, however.

I work and live in the community and have the best job in town - as a Realtor, not only do I get to help people find homes to live, but I walk one block to my office. I knew it was the best town before anyone said it was #1. I write a local column about the everyday life that goes on here and can say that the schools are fantastic (we have 4 children in the district), the downtown is quaint (and safe), and the parks and programs are family focused. I love our town and am glad it is recognized to be the best. Mike McCurry
Clarendon Hills is an aspirational town of modest socioeconomic diversity with value-based, community-centered families who share priorities of public safety and quality education as core initiatives of government service.
