Tips for Renting in Lisle, IL

Lisle is a good choice for anyone looking for a quieter, more relaxed pace of life. Compared to Chicago, Lisle is a tiny village, but if the idea of a small suburb puts you off, don’t despair. The surrounding area, while dotted with areas of natural beauty, is mostly urban, ensuring you’ll still be able to get your fix of nightlife, in neighboring towns such as Naperville. Commute times during rush hour can be arduous however, especially if you have to travel to downtown Chicago.

For those moving from warmer climes, the wind, rain, and snow can be a shock to the system. Anyone who is planning to drive a private vehicle would do well to take a refresher or advanced winter driver course, to learn more about snow chains, and how to handle the inevitable icy conditions. With Lisle itself somewhat lacking in local amenities, you may find that a private vehicle is extremely useful.
