Darien is a lovely place to live as it is located in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. It's a small city with kind residents. Anywhere you go in Darien is pleasant. It's crime rates are low, it's schools are amazing, and it's residents are very caring. I love living in Darien, IL and matter of fact I think it might be my favorite place I've lived.
I love how peaceful Darien is. There is not a lot of crimes that are commited, which makes me feel safer when I go out and see my friends. We can go out to eat or go to the mall without fearing something bad will happen at any moment. Although it is a very peaceful town, I would love to see more community gatherings where I could really meet new people. For example, I don't feel accepted in my neighbor, for I don't know any of their names, and no one makes an effort to make me feel accepted.
We have a very good library and several fairly good parks, but we lack a downtown area and could use a few good restaurants.
I have lived in Darien for all my 17 years, and I wouldn't want to move anywhere else. Darien is one of the best places in Dupage County you can live in,it is quiet and calm town and the crime rates are very low is 12 per 1,000 residents. There are a lot of older people in this town because it is an older town. Also every year there is an annual festival.
Darien has always been a nice place to live. However, I would like to see additional housing opportunities.
I love this little city. It is very cozy, tight-knit, and full of interesting and exciting people. I would love to see changes to our annual Darien Fest- sometimes, it can get quite boring.
Darien is a nice place to live. District 66 schools are excellent, safe, conveniently located, lots of shopping and restaurants nearby.
It is very quiet and quaint. I love how there is never any real violence or problems. Mostly everyone here is very welcoming and knows one another. I wish there was more activity in Darien and things to do such as there are in other neighboring communities. We are very lucky as well to have Waterfall Glen right at our convenience as well and be able to immerse ourselves with nature.
This is such a great town. Very quiet and family friendly. Great place to raise children and grow families with wonderful schools.
It is a very welcoming community, little crime, and very clean. There are lots of activities and things to do in Darien or in the immediate area. I'm so happy I got to grow up in a very wonderful area.
Great small town. Very diverse and excellent school system. Darien have great resources for all ages.
Darien, an average suburb that caters your needs, however it does not cater your wants. It is not an extraordinarily city where people do extraordinary things. However, we have so many different things that we are able to accomplish just within our city. We can walk around in the day an in the night to the variety of occasions and places we can go to with our families or with our friends. I am thankful for the serenity of Darien!
The one thing I like about Darien is that its a quiet town and getting on highways and heading to certain areas are super easy.
Very clean and safe community. Families would love the environment. Theirs minimal crime in this area.
Safe community and area to live in. Feel safe at night. Low crime rates, and the crimes that happen are generally low risk for others. It is an expensive area, but the schools are excellent, and it has a great location. It is close to many important highways. Also, it is far enough from Chicago but still close enough. I think it is a lovely suburb, but it is no Hinsdale.
I have lived in Darien for quite a while. I could say that my favorite part in the summer about it is the Darien fest which is usually sometime around late August early September. I am very glad to see the streets being remodeled and other things as well. I truly wouldn't want to go anywhere else.
Residents take to thinking that the area is safe and don't suspect robberies to happen. Criminals know this. Some homes have been broken into when doors and windows are kept open.
