I’ve lived in Schaumburg my entire life, it’s always been very safe, has good schools, and lots to do. Now that I’m ready to go to college, I’ve run out of things to do and I have personally gotten bored of the suburbs. However, the neighbor is friendly, welcoming, and perfect to start a typical, suburban life.
An amazing place to live, full of people from all over, and being so close to the mall and the city makes life super easy when it comes shopping, or commuting to work. Furthermore the people in Schaumburg are quite nice and helpful towards on another. Nearby neighbors become quite close and often through block parties and other events.
