Where Life is
Different on Purpose
THE NATION’S BEST WORKERS WILL ALWAYS CHOOSE WHERE THEY LIVE.
In DuPage County, our leaders understand that a high quality-of-life is crucial to the health of our economy. Our businesses need top talent, so we’ve fostered the conditions to make DuPage the right choice—not only to do business, but to live, to grow a family and to prosper as a community.
An abundance of forests to explore, a wealth of culture to experience, a system of high-quality education to discover. That’s the DuPage Difference.
FORESTS TO EXPLORE.
DuPage’s greatest advantage has been here all along.
With tree-lined streets, extensive bike paths and an abundance of forest preserves, residents and & visitors of the county enjoy a connection to nature wherever they go.
This connection is the result of a commitment we made long ago. As residents of Illinois’ second-oldest Forest Preserve District, the leaders of DuPage County have maintained the beauty of our home, planning our business and community developments to feel as natural as the land where they prosper.
CULTURE TO EXPERIENCE.
Be it an evening at the theatre, a season of festivals or a simple drive through the architectural elegance of DuPage, culture is a celebration of what makes our community different.
We have plenty of ways to celebrate. For those planning an evening out, local colleges and theaters draw world-class performers in music, dance and drama. For families searching for fun, they’ll have to look no further than the colorful, kid-friendly adventures of the DuPage Children’s Museum. And for architectural enthusiasts seeking landmarks of polished stone, the celebration is all around. Visit our Arts, Entertainment & Recreation page to learn more.
EDUCATION TO DISCOVER.
It’s no coincidence we have a highly skilled workforce.
With 19 accredited colleges and universities, as well as national-caliber public schooling, DuPage County is nurturing generations of brilliant minds.
