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 wouldn't move back to DuPage County if you paid me, but as 630- (and now 331-) suburbs go, Clarendon Hills is a good place to own a home and do the old-fashioned commute to the city for those who still have careers like that. If you want your children to grow up in a diverse population, this is SO not the area for that. Many may consider the whole area to be too conservative, but it's not as stifling as, say, Wheaton. Schools are good.
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
