Really not experienced in this community on whether it is age friendly or unfriendly
Is noted as an excellent family town with many resources for learning and activities

There is a tremendous amount of traffic in the city with heavy congetstion during rush hours.  The community is really set up for young families and overall the cost of living is very high.  Housing is not affordable unless you are very affluent.  Health care however is really top notch in Naperville, and there are a significant number of volunteer opportunites.  There are a significant number of cultural events, including first rate theatre productions in nearby Aurora Illinois.  Downtown Naperville is really quaint and charming, and the Riverwalk along the Dupage river is really exceptional.  So all in all, the amenities are great, there is low crime, but the cost of living is high and the traffic is significant.

I just think it's a little of both. Friendly or somewhat friendly
Very high taxes
