All About

Living in Carol Stream, IL

If you've researched Carol Stream in anticipation of renting an apartment there, you may have already realized that it's quite the enticing little city. With around 40,000 residents, it may be small in size compared to many cities, but it scores big in city planning, natural beauty and community services.

When you look for apartments in Carol Stream, they're likely to be in the western part of the city. That's because when founder and developer Jay Stream first incorporated the village of Carol Stream in 1959, he planned a community with residential housing in the west and industrial businesses in the east. His daughter, whom he named the city after, has lived to see the success of her father's plan.

In your new Carol Stream apartment, you'll share the city with more than 15,000 dwellings and close to 1,000 businesses. With so many businesses and a strong local economy, finding work in Carol Stream shouldn't be hard. And if and when you're ready to purchase property in Carol Stream, you'll still enjoy many of the city's public services without paying any property taxes.

If you rent an apartment in Carol Stream, you'll have the opportunity to explore the city's national, award-winning park district, appropriately named the Carol Stream Park District. Go for a hike or have a picnic in any of the 440 acres of parks and open space. The park district provides more than 200 seasonal recreational programs for your enjoyment. There's also the Illinois Prairie Path, which is comprised of about 60 miles of nature paths for hiking, biking and horseback riding.

If you're not already a golfer, you might decide to take up the sport after moving into your new Carol Stream apartment. There are more than 40 golf courses in DuPage County, including the Klein Creek Golf Club created by renowned golf course architect, Dick Nugent. This 18-hole work of art is located on 230 acres of rolling grassland and is a golf enthusiast's dream.

Whether there will be children inhabiting your new apartment or not, there is fun for kids big and small in Carol Stream.

Play a light-hearted or seriously-competitive game of miniature golf (depending on your nature) at Coyote Crossing Miniature Golf in McCaslin Park.
