Located just outside of Chicago on the western border of Cook County, Berkeley is a great place to raise a family away from the hustle and bustle of the city but still with easy access to the amenities therein.
Often thought of as a “Bedroom Community” – or a residential area where people who work in the city can live in peace – we’re much more than that. Sure, we’re mostly residential, but we have diversity, history, tradition, and generations of farm families.
Unlike Chicago, we have minimal crime, a balanced budget, and a small committed group of village representatives who convey the interests of the citizens rather than their own pocketbooks. But, only 14 miles west of the loop, we’re as close to downtown as many Chicago residents on the far north or far south sides are.
