Montgomery is a small town nestled between the cities of Aurora and Naperville and is about an hour west of Chicago. It's located on the Fox River and has ample parks and bike paths through the town. While it has minimal in town entertainment options, there are numerous options just outside town in Aurora, Oswego, and Naperville. It has the feeling of a small town while having the accommodations of the suburbs.

Montgomery is a very quiet neighborhood that’s perfect for a family or anyone thats searching for some relaxation. It’s surrounded with beautiful trails to roam around the area! It’s also very well known for its Montgomery fest that’s held every summer! Perfect for some fun and getting to know your neighbors!!
I love my community, I have many friends and some family within the community. Everyone is very nice and generous, and quite safe as well. I wish more people got to live in Montgomery, Illinois.
