Good lifestyle with excellent medical facilities. Easy commute around town. Property taxes have actually been lowered over the past five years. In center of city access to five major shopping centers within ten minutes. City is turning around the schools. Good colleges and junior colleges in town and within 50 miles (Bradley U, Illinois State, Illinois Central Community College, Eureka College, Western Illinois University). Downtown revitalization campaign with new Caterpillar museum being built and RecPlex facility. Most decent housing will cost at least $160K, but market runs from $60K to $4M. Three hour drive from big cities of Chicago and Saint Louis. Has minor league baseball, hockey, arena football teams. Above average public and private golf courses. Very active neighborhood associations. Slower pace than big cities and farmland properties just outside of city limits. Has good cultural and arts available with Symphony orchestra, ballet company, Civic center for rock bands, etc, The people are very friendly and courteous in person, but don't be a pedestrian downtown as some drivers do not yield.
A very comfortable place to live and raise a family.
