      In my opinion there is no better place to live than Glen Ellyn. It is a vibrant and bustling city. There are many young people and new families in the area to make sure that there is always something to do. The town is beautiful and immediately feels like coming home. But what makes Glen Ellyn particularly special is the people. The community is so friendly and kind, it is truly a great place to live.

      I love the restaurant and night life in Glen Ellyn. There are many small businesses and family run places that really turn out great quality food and drinks. I personally love going to Hokkai Sushi Cuisine. It is a bit of a town secret and many people from out of town don't even know that Hokkai exists.

      Glen Ellyn is even close enough to Chicago that getting into the city is a breeze. For me, living in Glen Ellyn has the best parts of a smaller community without loosing the vibrancy and color of the city.
