Naperville has done a nice job of retaining and restoring its old downtown section. We had no idea that it was established as a city a few years b4 Chicago.We enjoyed walking up and down the streets looking at the various stores.

Great place to take the kids for a history lesson. The Fort has been turned into a kids playground. Sometimes they have a working blacksmith shop which is AWESOME!!

A very nice walk through historic Naperville. The buildings are quite interesting and beautiful with a wonderful college campus ( North Central College ). Close by are great restaurants and the famous Riverwalk.

The town has done a nice job of retaining and restoring the old downtown section. We enjoyed walking up and down the streets looking at the various stores. It's nice to see the mom and pop type stores in amongst the chain stores. Best of all parking is free - both on the street and in the parking lots that... More

The venue needs more visibility esp. in tourist literature such that those visiting Chicago don't miss out on this heavenly experience.The only other place which evoked a similar soothing... More

Buying an old home once scared me. Then I was lucky enough to work with a person who had roots in Naperville and a passion for preserving its Historic Homes.
