I always say Illinois gets such a bad rap for a LOT of things, but there are parts of the state that are nice. One of those places is being recognized as being among the best places to live in the nation.

We've mentioned several times that Naperville is becoming that city where people just want to be, and the experts agree. According to Home Snacks, they claim that Naperville, Illinois is one of the best places to live in America.


Well, the town is safe, has excellent schools, and plenty of job opportunities (it does help that the town is close to Chicago), there's so much to do in the town,  and the crime rates are fairly low. Who wouldn't want to live in a town like that?

Now, when we take the train to Chicago and stop in Naperville I don't see much of the tow, but from what I can see the town does look like a beautiful place to live. And the houses that I can see from the train tracks are massive and gorgeous.

So, if you can afford to live in Naperville and enjoy going to the city when you want to, but come home to a quiet town I would say Naperville is the one for you.
