It's a pretty small and quiet town. While you are in proximity to the city and always have small cafes and shops around, there is no hustle of the bigger towns. Westmont is a nice place to live!

Westmont is the best place to live. It is so quiet and safe neighborhood. Also, it is beautifully decorated in winter. During summer days Westmont is the hometown of many happenings, circuses, street events, all being supported the most by the youngest. During these events the streets are closed, so many people can walk and enjoy with their company. Important fact to mention is the high school ratings and their great programs that would interest most people. Being close to big shopping malls and express ways gives Westmont an open experience to the surrounding area and the city. It is part of the Dupage county and therefore, not to high taxes.
Great town with tons to do in the summer. Every week there is a classic car show, loads of activities at the library for kids, and delicious food to be found! The schools are small, which is so nice! Affordability is excellent.
