Review of Schaumburg, Illinois

Schaumburg, IL General livability
Star Rating - 4/24/2013
Nice middle-class community. Excellent schools. Excellent variety in retail establishments. Very good park district with plentiful activities, classes, and three outdoor pools/water parks and one indoor pool/water park. Low crime rate. Very safe community. Very populous are with about 70,000 residents. Traffic can be a challenge especially at rush hour and on weekends. Cost of living is quite high, but affordable with a family income of $75,000 to $100,000. Climate leaves something to be desired. Long, cold winters and hot humid summers. Proximity to Chicago makes employment and cultural activities easily accessible. Public transportation is not particularly plentiful. A car is a must.
