Naperville, Illinois, is an exciting city just outside Chicago with a vibrant downtown area where people can go to have a relaxing stroll down the Riverwalk or take in the nightlife with live music at the many restaurants. People can find whole-in-the-wall eateries, Irish pubs, a rooftop speakeasy, or a serene bookshop to have a coffee. There is something for everyone in beautiful Downtown Naperville.

The demographic of Naperville is predominantly White, but there is still a wide variety of ethnicities that call this area home. There are large parts of Naperville that are influenced by the Asian culture and there are many restaurants and stores that cater to that specific audience.

Naperville is definitely for those who are looking for a fun night out with friends and families in a bigger capacity. There is more for younger kids, and it is safe enough for teenagers to go out in groups with their friends. Naperville’s biggest attraction is Downtown Naperville.
