    Niche User:I'm only nineteen years old, and I have lived in Coal City Illinois my entire life. My parents grew up here and so did I. The town itself is small and everyone knows each other, so it can be very clicky. But I am proud of where I come from and feel as if I received a great high school education. As for if I would continue to live here after graduating college, I'm not sure. If I could find a job in my field after graduation I would most definitely consider staying, for I am very close with my family and would like to stay near them. On top of that, Coal City is a great place to raise a family in my opinion. The only reason I would think to move away is the weather. Since November of 2013 to now, Coal City has been hit by two tornados and my family has been affected both times. Overall I love this town and if it were a financially safe move, I believe I would continue to live here and eventually start a family.

    • Town in Pennsylvania

    Niche User:The great thing about this area is that it's rural without being overly isolated from civilization. It's very quiet, but close enough to town to be convenient. People are very friendly, and disputes are usually settled quickly and quietly.
