I've been living in Crestwood Illinois for the last 8 years and have enjoyed the diverse culture of the people who live here and also the friendly neighborhoods that has become a staple for this city that I now call my home. Crestwood has decent school systems but not the best resources at the schools to provide safe and secure education of the children. There is the prevalent crime in Crestwood and it would be great if there was an increased police presence in the city. There are lots of shops, restaurants, and small businesses in Crestwood to enjoy and provide opportunities to purchase the things that you need to live comfortably here.
The best areas in Crestwood or around the Midlothian Country Club area where there are great neighborhood communities that is very friendly and upper-scale. There are a lot of recreational parks that have great amenities for family-friendly outings and for community events. If you're looking to relocate to Illinois and looking for a smaller town culture that also has all the amenities needed to feel comfortable Crestwood would be a great place to live.
