Money Magazine has named the city of Wheaton the top ranking city in Illinois in it’s annual “Best Places to Live in Every State” list.
“Founded by a group of abolitionists in the 1850s and home to the Wheaton Flag antislavery newspaper, this safe, well-educated suburb of Chicago has a rich history readily discovered at the DuPage County Historical Museum, founded by John Quincy Adams — a distant relative to the president of the same name — in 1891.” read the article in its summary.
This year’s best-rated cities needed to have populations of at least 50,000 and were rated based on several factors including affordability, safety, convenience, local economy, cost of buying a home to median household income.
Wheaton, Illinois, population 53,585, is the county seat of DuPage County and has been highly ranked highly before in other publications because of its high-quality schools and low crime.
Only two cities in Illinois made the top 100: Wheaton at 27 and Schaumberg at number 34.
Suggestions for attractions in Wheaton from Money included taking a horse-drawn carriage ride through Downtown Wheaton, stopping at the historic The Little Popcorn Store, and visiting the Cosley Zoo.
Also noted was that the median home sales price was $350,000 in the first quarter of 2018.
Congratulations to the City of Wheaton for being recognized as the best city to live in Illinois!
