Oak Park, IL; A Residential Neighborhood with Many Perks

As a girl I relocated many times with my family, mostly oversees, as my father was proficient in a variety of languages, an asset his company chose to mine abundantly. When at last we returned to living full time in the U.S I lived in Dallas, Texas, for a period of months. It was from there that we moved to Oak Park, Illinois, where I was destined to pass most of my Middle School years and all of my High School ones. Oak Park schools are rated as stellar, and deservedly so. I had great teachers, our classes had moderate teacher/student ratios and the offerings, both in terms of required classes and activities were large and varied enough to suit almost any type of student. In fact, my High School even offered an innovative school within a school for students who felt disenfranchised from the usual sort of classroom. Besides great schools, Oak Park is renowned for its architecture. Students of Frank LLoyd Wright can find a number of great examples of his work just by walking around. Edgar Rice Burroughs and the creator of the "Twinkie" are also notable as one time Oak Park citizens. While there is a small slightly more urban slice that abuts the outskirts of Chicago, Oak Park is largely suburban, that is residential family living. The sense of community is high. There is a great library, a fantastic local paper and many community-sponsored activities. There is a very reputable hospital. Nightlife consists, for the most part, of a great play, a movie, or some fine dining. You may have to travel for dancing till dawn. The shopping is varied with both boutiques and chain stores. Odds are you may have some digging out to do in the winter. Summers, however, are very pleasant.
