That depends on what your looking for.
I'm obviously partial to Naperville. Great City services, schools are top notch and you can find something in your price range, whatever that may be.

You will be doing that in naperville. Majority of the people close to the city more than likely lived there at some point.

For myself i would never leave downtown.

Speaking of guns, you will need a FOID card in Illinois. I'm not sure what the grace period is or if there even is one. You may want to email the Illinois state police to find out how that will work.

I'd suggest finding a place west of Rt. 47. Avoid those city folk.
