Great small town with excellent schools and a cute downtown. Easy to get to downtown Chicago on train or highway. Cons: lack of diversity and more conservatives than I would like to live near. Also, lack of local businesses leads to higher taxes and the downtown needs some work (though it is improving). Needs better restaurants and a bar or two that doesn’t close at 9:30. It’s a safe, clean and friendly community and a really nice place to live.

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.
