I recently moved to Lockport, IL and have enjoyed my experience for the last year and a half. Lockport, IL offers an array of benefits in terms of housing options, educational and academic programs, restaurants, and employment opportunities. Aside from these benefits, Lockport has beautiful weather and charming festivals and city events for citizens to enjoy year round.
Lockport is known throughout the Midwest for its safety rating and many families flock to the area for this reason. The neighborhood where I live in Lockport has recently received an A rating for safety by Better Homes and Gardens and this rating is certainly not uncommon for the city. The city's 5 star school ratings, plentiful museums and monuments, thriving job market, and highly reviewed restaurants and shopping centers also make it an ideal place for young and established families to create roots. Lockport's housing market is fairly expensive for the area, but I typically have no problem paying for above average housing in such a safe environment.
