Extraordinary Plainfield

Situated around forty-five minutes South-West of Chicago, Plainfield, IL is a pretty darn nice place to call home. Having lived here for about five years now, I have found that although the cost of living in Plainfield is quite low, the quality of life is well above average. Plainfield combines some of the best aspects of both rural and urban life. For those that love the outdoors, Mistwood Golf Club and Lake Renwick Reserve are always popular attractions. For the urbanites, a short ride up I-55 will have them immersed in all of the best museums and theaters that Chicago has to offer. No matter what your tastes or preferences may be, you are sure to find something fun to do in the Plainfield area. The main drawback to living in Plainfield has got to be the weather. When the sun is shining this city shines with it, but those long winters with snow and ice blowing in from Lake Michigan can be tough to endure.
