Wayne Reviews

1 review
I have lived in Wayne my whole life and I love it but because the town is so small theres nothing really in it besides houses and barns so you always have to go to Bartlett, St. Charles, or West Chicago for food and shopping. Also, I live 5 minutes from Bartlett High School and 20 minutes from South Elgin high school, where I go, because of the boundaries.
