Geneva, Illinois: A Good Place for a Good Start 4 rating By Anonymous ( May 10, 2018) Geneva, Illinois is a suburb of Chicago, but you honestly would never know it's anywhere near such a big city. It's a nice place that has a semi-country feel to it. The public transit system is convenient and money-saving. Whether you are single or whether you have a family, ther ...Read More e's a wide variety of jobs in nearby Chicago that offer real career opportunities. The local schools get high marks and the local crime rate is low. Gotta love a town that offers those two very important points!

Geneva is one of the best areas to live in due to the close proximity to Chicago. It makes for a great array of nightlife options and other fun activities. I've been living in Geneva for 34 years now and I never get tired of visiting the Fabyan Villa Museum and Japanese Garden. So much beauty and history there! Downtown Geneva offers more than 100 wonderful little specialty shops and restaurants, which makes for a fantastic weekend afternoon of window shopping and lunch. Living in Geneva has always been a pleasant experience for me and my family. Read Less
