Oswego schools are pretty decent but could be better. Many families, restaurants, shops, etc. Not too far away from the city of Chicago, which is fun for breaks and long weekends.

Oswego is a very small town so there isn't much to do, There are some good restaurants and store in town. Downtown Oswego has a lot of small family owned shops that have a variety of products.
Still small town...friendly. Lots of shopping and great restaurants. Close enough to the bigger municipalities and wide open spaces.
