Hinsdale is a charming quaint town. The town is great for raising a family! The area has excellent schools from pre-k to high school. There's many good restaurants, in downtown hinsdale. I recommend Nabuki... some of the best sushi in the Chicagoland area! The town is overall safe, clean, and a great place to live!

Hinsdale is all about location. It's location is it's greatest asset with a 15min train ride to the Loop, 20min to both Midway and O'Hare, and easy access to I-294, Rte. 83, I-55, and I-290 all make it extremely attractive to professionals working downtown, especially when compared with more inconvenient and isolated North Shore suburbs. The schools are excellent and there is definitely a small town Americana feel about the walkable community. There is definitely very apparent wealth in the town, but there are also many who devote their entire income to living here in order to access the top-rated schools. It is a great place to raise a family.
Hinsdale has an excellent school system and is a very family friendly neighborhood. However, both residential and commercial real estate options are expensive.
