There's no need for a Wheaton apartment-ite to leave the city, there's so much to do here. History, art, school and parks make it a perfect cultural experience, with shopping and restaurants galore. There's a comfortable feel to the city of around 55,000 people, and just in case you want to get away, it's just 25 miles west of Chicago and Lake Michigan.
In addition to an energetic downtown and several shopping districts, a French Market running from April to November in downtown and the Farmer's Market that is offered from June through October near the Wheaton Public Library provide fresh produce, gifts and flowers. The arts are alive and well in Wheaton, with both exhibits and opportunities to create art. Both performing and display arts are available at Wheaton Grand Theatre and Wheaton Drama, and The Dupage Art League. Wheaton College, a Christian Liberal Arts college with the Billy Graham Center, one of its most recognized alumni, also has a Community School of the Arts.
Wheaton apartment dwellers can feel comfortable sending their children to the highly ranked Community Unit School District 200. Play places are in abundance here in this comfortable city, with a zoo, a golf course, a pool and water park, fitness center, and 52 park sites on 800 acres featuring picnic spots, trails and benches.
Live, work, play and raise a family - it's a good move to have a Wheaton apartment.
