Anyone who knows Elmhurst won’t be surprised to hear we were recently named one of the 11 best cities in Illinois to raise a family.

Elmhurst came in at #7 with mention of our great schools, amazing museums, and abundance of parks. We join neighboring west suburban towns Hinsdale and Naperville on the list.

In addition to four museums (Historical, Art, Lapidary, and Theatre), award-winning schools and 22 parks, Elmhurst is also home to a Conservatory, a Symphony, and a variety of local theater groups.

Our vibrant downtown consists of local boutiques, restaurants, coffee houses, and wine shops. The Elmhurst Public Library is a state-of-the-art facility that features the latest technological resources.

Elmhurst College lends a young vibe to the city, in addition to hosting a variety of community events. Elmhurst Hospital’s merger with Edward Hospital makes it one of the larger integrated health systems in Illinois.

Our convenient location on the Metra line also allows us easy access to all that Chicago has to offer.

There are many great reasons to live in and love Elmhurst! If you want to see some of the great homes we have the market, visit us at or call (630) 441-5570.
