This is a phenomenal town to live in. It is a close knit community with a small town vibe, but without the lack of shopping. The town has been expanding drastically over the past ten years, but has not lost it's home sweet home charm. I can get to any store with a short travel time, and of course have my usual server at my favorite restaurants! The City of Yorkville also hosts events for all age groups that provide endless fun for this growing community.

I grew up in Yorkville and it is a very quaint town. It's a smaller suburb west of Chicago. Many families choose to live here because of its safety and schools. The educational system in Yorkville is phenomenal, whether you choose to go to a public or private school. Yorkville is always growing and opening up new businesses and franchises. During evening hours, there are many restaurants and pubs to go to. However, Yorkville is not a happening spot for clubs and bars because it is a less populated area. I would definitely raise my family here and explore the many more perks of Yorkville!
Yorkville is a very safe town that is good for families who would like to settle down. There is a variety of places to go including raging waves, Yorkville bowl, and Grace. Yorkville also offers a majority of popular stores and is close to various malls.
