      Morton. IL is one of those places you pray you will find when you are ready to pull up stakes and relocate. I know that was the case with me 11 years ago when I moved here. I have been living in Morton ever since and I wouldn't dream of living anywhere else. Morton is one of the lowest crim areas I know of. The schools here are very good, and the job market is stable and healthy. The people are what truly make this such a wonderful place to live. They have treated me like family from day one. I may be a little bit biased, but I think my neighborhood is one of the best areas in Morton!

      Living in Morton gives you some really fun things to do in your spare time, like experiencing Art at the Bodega, where you can create a piece of artwork of your own while you enjoy some wine; there's America's Playable Arcade Museum, Wildlife Prarie Park and the Wheels O' Time Museum. Absolutely two thumbs up from me, but come and see for yourself!
