Plumbing in Naperville IL

Naperville IL

Naperville ranked as the second of one hundred best places to live according to the Money magazine, in 2006. So I guess this gives Naperville a few bragging rights. Interesting factoids on this ranking can be found below.

Naperville was one of the first cities in the country to create a memorial in the honor of those lost on September 11, 2001. The memorial is located by the river walk in downtown Naperville. The memorial was inspired by the city’s own Dan Shanower, a naval commander who died at the tragic Pentagon attack.

The city is a home to a little event called Rib-fest. And by little, I mean HUGE. This festival is one of the largest entertainment venues, featuring close to 20 different “ribbers” and performances by numerous popular bands. It’s held every year during the fourth of July weekend. Check it out. Good food. Great fun. I promise.

The Naperville Public Library is ranked as the best public library in the United States. The library received this honor for eight years in a row, from 1999 to 2006. Way to go readers and librarians of Naperville!

Naperville is well known for its school districts. This city is home to eight different colleges and universities. Eight! This includes a campus of DePaul University, my personal favorite (as a graduate, I’m biased towards that one), Northern Illinois University, and DeVry University.
