Bartlett is a quiet and safe suburb with a lot of friendly people. There is a great sense of community since the area is relatively small. The only concern I have of Bartlett is the distance from the city of Chicago. Luckily there is a Metra train in downtown Bartlett. Bartlett has a great variety of restaurants to choose from. There are many local activities and programs to take advantage of. There is also a park and recreational center. Bartlett is a place where you can just relax, unwind, and enjoy the the simple things.

living in this area is okay. There are restraunts and places to shop, you just have to drive 15 minutes down the road to actually find something. There's a mall in the next town over which is nice to go to if you do like shopping. There's a wide variety of stores, and isn't super packed with people, which I always found nice. There's another mall in the oppisite direction that was once the highlight of our area. Now there are only 3 stores in it and a movie theatre.. There isn't much to do in this area for fun. You really have to look hard to find something!

Wonderful neighborhood, full of lovely people who respect one another. I would stay here for ever if I could. I love the area and how everything is so close. The downtown area is full of life during all seasons. Beaver Pond is beautiful, the new path around the pond is a wonderful way to motivate people to get outside. There are great dinning options; from fast food to sit down.
