Clarendon Hills Reviews

11 reviews
All Categories
Voted the safest Chicago Suburb, Clarendon Hills is a family-friendly neighborhood with incredible public schools and involved parents. Clarendon Hills is a close-knit community with a friendly environment, expensive houses, and high taxes. It's majority white and overshadowed by Hinsdale's hipster and more modern vibe.

Clarendon Hills is a small, friendly, upper middle class community. The people that live there are nice and overall the town is a great place to raise a family. If you are looking for night life this is not the place for you. However, with a small downtown area with various shops and easy access to the metra train line it is an excellent town for those who are looking for a quite lifestyle.
Clarendon Hills helps people slow down, truly feel a sense of community where people know their neighbors and people genuinely care about each other. Some may call it Mayberry, we call it Clarendon Hills.
