Downers Grove

A much sought after community and a favorite of commuters because of location: 20 miles west of Chicago, at the junction of the east-west I-88 corridor and I-355, with not one but three Metra stations within its boundaries. With a top rated school system, Downers has been named one of the Top 10 Livable Cities for Kids and ranked by Forbes as one of America’s Friendliest Towns.

It is ranked among the top education systems in Illinois, with a 12 percent higher high school graduation rate than the rest of the state. Annual household incomes of over $78,000 which is more than 35 percent higher than average in the state.
