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.

travis29 01-01-2013 11:58 AM

If u are single get a place in the city.

mpoberg 01-01-2013 12:04 PM

I would rather take a hedder off the Hancock than live downtown. What next? Buy a Prius, Sell my guns and talk about whales at starbucks ;p. Just playing! ! Thanks though.

mpoberg 01-01-2013 12:09 PM

Naperville is 1st on my list to check out now.. only 11 miles from work and train/freeway are close. :)

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.

mpoberg 01-01-2013 01:41 PM

Thanks! Good looken out. :)

Cdavidsonrzr 01-04-2013 01:49 AM

Right here in west chicago. Check out st charles. geneva. Bartlet. And we do beer.

mpoberg 01-04-2013 02:08 AM

Beer is good! :)

Lil Black JK 01-07-2013 04:53 PM

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

mpoberg 01-07-2013 06:35 PM

That sounds like good advice! ;)

mpoberg 01-27-2013 08:07 PM

Im here.. its cold! LoL

cavsvet74 01-28-2013 08:17 AM

Welcome to Illinois.

Don't worry about the cold, it will be 60 tomorrow.

shanes04wrangler 02-01-2013 12:43 AM

I am from metro Detroit so i am use to the cold but Chicago does not get that much snow as d town but still a lot of salt, and coney dogs and chili cheese fries is were its at.

mpoberg 02-10-2013 02:14 PM

Im going to have to rent a place while my house is being built. We are moving to st charles. Anyone close?

odd42 03-20-2013 09:22 PM

mpoberg 03-20-2013 09:26 PM
