Quality of Life

Living in rural Illinois is not for everyone. Certainly, there are differences between us and the big city. But if you won't miss traffic jams that go on forever or neighbors perched outside your bathroom window… or if you can get used to kayaking a quiet stream, attending community theater, watching a sunset over the hills any day you wish or sipping a chilled glass of lemonade on your porch while watching the birds at your feeder, Northwest Illinois might just be like heaven.
