This fast-growing bedroom community outside of Chicago offers shopping, restaurants and a bunch of parks - 23 of them - where families can hike, picnic and barbeque. Events like the Indiana Symphony's annual visit to Redar Park and the corn roast, now in its fourth decade, are big draws for the town's 25,000 residents. You won't find any large employers in Schererville proper, but the steel mills and white-collar jobs of southern Chicago and its outer loop are just 30 minutes away. -A.F.
