Great city for a walk

My wife and I enjoy our trips to Naperville. It is a very enjoyable place to walk, shop and eat. There always seems to be something of interest to see and do.

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

I enjoy always learning about the places I visit. Naperville is no exception. It is a great experience to learn about the inception and history of the city in a fun and easy to learn way. I highly reccomend it.

Those who relish long walks would love this place. Wish the whole of US had preserved history in similar fashion. Come here and you'll forget the plastic modernity of Chicago downtown. 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. As I became more knowledgeable, I realized that a well maintained home could be a real treasure in the Historic District. Where else can you find Victorian, Prairie, Bungalow, Farmhouse,... More

The historic section of Naperville is lovely and very easy to access. You can walk from the train station to the downtown area and see plenty of gorgeous old architecture.

I live in Naperville, so drive thru this area quiet a bit. The streets surrounding North Central College are lined with mature trees and most of the houses are large and elegant. I can imagine it being a summer getaway for the people of Chicago. Of course, when I first moved here the downtown area was more small town, but... More

Strictly speaking, the Historic District is an area to the north east of the downtown area, and marked by road signs. You can easily walk from the Historic District to the downtown area or the station or the DuPage children's museum as the Historic District borders them all. The Historic District includes much of North Central College and many older... More

Downtown Naperville offers many unique shops, which is especially fun during the Holidays. When the weather is nice, take a walk along the Riverwalk or stop, sit, and enjoy the scenery. Some old historic areas (especially Naper Settlement) offer interest to history buffs, and those who like to shop will never be at a loss.
