Renters’ Guide to Naperville

Naperville, Illinois is a charming city 30 miles west of Chicago. It is the 3rd-largest city in the state, yet even with a large population, it’s nowhere near as large as Chicago. Its appeal is as big as its larger sister’s, though; Naperville has won numerous awards for being a desirable place to live. In fact, Money magazine named it the 10th “Best Place to Live” in 2016, and Kiplinger called it the “Best Place for Early Retirement” in 2013.

Naperville weather is what you would expect for a city on the north coast: cold, snowy winters (temperatures range around 15˚F from December to February) and pleasant, warm summers (June through August days typically hit 84˚F). You have to be a fan of snow if you move to Naperville, Il. On average, the city sees about 29 inches of the white stuff every year.
