Living in Wheaton, IL

Wheaton is a small city located about 30 miles west of Chicago. Ranked as one of the safest cities to live in the U.S., it’s a great place for renters looking for an affordable and calm community. It’s also home to several colleges and universities, including Wheaton College, one of the oldest liberal arts colleges in the country. Wheaton has a continental climate, with hot, humid summers and cold, snowy winters. Average temperatures here range from 30°F to 85°F. Because of its location in the Midwest, Wheaton is also subject to thunderstorms, tornadoes and occasional blizzards. That said, residents also enjoy plenty of sunny days, offering the chance to explore the city’s numerous parks, natural preserves and recreational facilities. Plus, Wheaton is also a golfer’s haven, home to some of the most popular golf courses in the state.

Renting in Wheaton, IL

The rental market in Wheaton is split by State Route 38, which cuts right through the middle of the city. Rentals in the north are typically smaller apartments for rent with lower rent prices. These rental units are concentrated around Wheaton University, so they’re mostly populated with university students. In contrast, the southern part has spacious, single-family homes and townhomes with luxury amenities and higher rent prices. These are closer to schools, golf courses, and parks, so families and young professionals are often the primary types of renters in these neighborhoods. Notably, the lease agreement should define the responsibility for maintaining the property, paying utilities, late rent fees and other important matters. While the state doesn’t regulate the limit, security deposits are typically one month’s rent. Additionally, when terminating the lease, the renter or landlord should provide 30 days’ written notice.

Things for renting

Shopping in Wheaton, IL

Danada Square — an open-air shopping district with multiple big-box stores, restaurants and entertainment venues — is the main shopping district in the city. Rice Lake Square, Town Square Wheaton, and Main Street Plaza are also areas where renters can find national and regional shops that offer everyday and specialty items. For more shopping opportunities from popular brand names, renters are just a short distance from Chicago’s extensive shopping scene. Meanwhile, Wheaton is also home to several home goods and grocery chains, including Target, Kohl’s, Whole Foods Market, Dollar Tree, and the local Mariano’s and Jewel-Osco stores. Several farmers’ markets are also available on regular schedules throughout the year.

Transportation in Wheaton, IL

Like neighboring areas, Wheaton offers renters several transportation methods, including walking, cycling, public transportation, ridesharing, air travel or private vehicle. Specifically, renters looking for an eco-friendly transportation option can use the city’s multiple pedestrian- and bike-friendly trails and facilities to accomplish their errands. Or, for public transportation, the Metra commuter rail system runs regular commuter trains into downtown Chicago, while several Pace bus routes have lines within the city and to other suburbs. For road transit, State Route 38 passes through the center and State Route 56 goes along the city’s southern border, making it easy to get around by car. Otherwise, renters needing on-demand ridesharing services can request an on-demand ride from Uber or Lyft, the primary carpooling service providers in the city. Finally, for renters who need air travel, Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport is just a short drive away.
