Naperville is an excellent, family friendly city. The schools are top notch with everything in the community is geared towards creating a warm, welcoming environment for new Naperville families as well as Naperville veterans. It is always very safe and I have never felt uncomfortable or out of place even being a young female. There are always community events happening like the Naperville 5K, Ribfest, The Last Fling, or The Chocolate Walk to name a few. There is something for everyone in a community as vast as Naperville. With that, it can be more expensive to live here as the communities are a bit more upscale but there is plenty of affordable housing available. I would not have wanted to grow up anywhere else!

Naperville has a lot for everyone, the quaint downtown area is the main attraction with a little bit of everything. There is high end clothing and furniture stores and a place for lunch and dessert literally on every corner. Centennial Beach is the summer hot spot and the beautiful lights make the snowy winters even more magical. With the river walk, murals, fountains and more Naperville is a fun place to visit and raise a family with the great schools as well. Go Redhawks!
Naperville is a very safe city, but unfortunately, it doesn't have much to offer beyond that. Even though Naperville has fantastic public schools and it is one of the nicest suburbs to live in, there is suprisingly not that much to do. The city is awfully boring on Friday and Saturday nights, which is one of the biggest issues with the city. It also is expensive, including property. The location is close to Chicago, but not really close enough as commute time still can be brutal with all the traffic. Getting anywhere in Naperville during rush hour is a pain!
