Compare Bolingbrook to Top 10 Best Places
Not too many places near Chicago can go by "village" anymore, but Bolingbrook claims the title proudly.
It's a relatively new suburb of Chicago, having been incorporated only in 1965. Since then, growth has exploded – so much so that IKEA brought its second Illinois location here three years ago.
An open-air mall, The Promenade Bolingbrook, also opened here last year. What's more, Clow International Airport, owned by the village for public use, is slated for expansion.
