1 Reviews & Comments About Carpentersville


HomeSnacks User

Carpentersville is a sleepy village about 40 miles from downtown Chicago and makes for a great visit. It has plenty of friendly citizens and the large park in the center of the village is beautiful. Every year they hold a big Civil War reenactment there.

The area is very diverse which means great food is never far! The schools have a lower rating, but that's mostly because of the high amount of english second language learners. The village also has a lower rate of crime than surrounding areas, despite the unearned reputation.
