NAPERVILLE NO. 3 ON "BEST PLACES TO LIVE" LIST

For the fifth time in six years, Money magazine ranked west suburban Naperville as one of the best places in the country to live.

From the August issue of the magazine, Money credited Naperville's popular downtown, fantastic public schools and proximity to Chicago when it ranked the suburb third out of 100 American cities. 

Naperville's drawbacks?  Traffic congestion and home prices.

Naperville was ranked third behind Plymouth, Minnesota and Ft. Collins, Colorado.

Naperville has made the list of most desirable place to live in 2002, 2004, 2005, and 2006.*
