I miss this place everyday. In 2018 I made an interexchange program in USA and for one AMAZING reason, I went to Winfield. This Chicago suburb is so perfect to build your life and raise your children. Totally safe, near to Chicago and other nice cities in Dupage County(Naperville, Aurora and Wheaton). If I had the opportunity to go back to Winfield or any city in Dupage County to live, I would feel happy forever.

It feels like a very nice community but with plenty of privacy. We have a forest preserve one block away which is great to go for walks in plus we have a LOT of wildlife that wanders into our yard. It's fun to see the wild turkeys, foxes, coyotes, and other animals. I enjoy living here and would definitely move here again if I had opportunity to do so. There is not any commercial space near me which seems to be how it will remain. Within a few miles however, there are more commercial enterprises going in and opening which is exciting.
Winfield is a very small and quiet little town. Boasting less than 10,000 inhabitants, it's easy to drive right past Winfield in a matter of minutes. It is easy to get downtown Chicago from Winfield. The local shops are beautiful and there are nice walking and biking paths in the city.
