    "Lots of kids play in the front yards and even meet up in the small park by the townhouses. It’s a safe area, just teach your kids to look both ways before crossing the street since a good amount of cars go in and out from all around. Especially near downtown Des Plaines."

    "I have a 10 min walk to Metra station and short walks to bus stops through out the neighborhood. we have never used the bus, but walked to take a train downtown. The commute to the city is 30 -40 min depending on the train type (express/regular). I would say the commute is easy. that is the main reason we still live in Des Plaines."

    "It's not the greatest for shopping, restaurants or civic beauty, but Des Plaines boasts a stellar public library, a Metra station, good schools, and safe, attractive neighborhoods. There are many charming homes with lovely gardens in this town, along with parks and the nearby forest preserve. Compared to bordering suburbs, property taxes are low. Only 30 minutes from downtown via Metra, and 10 minutes from O'Hare airport."

    "I actually love this neighborhood. My daughter is 9 and has quite a few friends that live in it and I always thought it was a nice area to raise kids. A lot of really beuatiful houses, old trees lining the streets, a lot of character, houses seem to be very well maintained but cozy, and it's close to the grade school and if anything ever sticks in the store fronts down town it would be really close to shopping/restaurants. Just my personal opinion, if I could I would love to live in this area."
