I have lived in the Hinsdale/Burr Ridge area for over 10 years. I attended school in District 181 and went to Hinsdale Central. I will say a few things. If your family is making approximately $200k or less, don't move here. You won't be able to live comfortably at all. Hinsdale Central isn't worth dropping 700k+ on a house over. If your annual income is less than $200k live somewhere more affordable with good schools like Buffalo Grove. If you are a minority, especially African American and/or Latino, things will be difficult. There are a lot of entitled racists in Hinsdale. If you are more liberal, keep in mind that Hinsdale is very republican. If you like nice roads, Hinsdale honestly sucks when it comes to nice roads. There are always closed roads. The education is good. However, I think mental health is a big issue in this area with teenagers. The town is very safe, the library is nice, and there are lots of parks for children to play in.
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!
