Sincerely,


No place in the U.S. offers you quite the slice of Americana as


the Midwest. Just 20 miles west of Chicago, DuPage County is one of the wealthiest, healthiest and greenest counties in Illinois, offering a unique combination of sophis- tication and local charm. Consisting of 38 vibrant communities, where the steaks are hearty, the craft beers are locally brewed, and the people are warm and hospitable, DuPage County attracts both the business and leisure traveler. Be prepared to experience world-class dining, high-end shopping and historical attractions.


Inside, you’ll learn about the historic entrepreneurs who helped build DuPage County and rebuild Chicago; the original birthplace of some of the most-notable restaurants in the United States, as well as some of Chicagoland’s signature cuisines.


Uniquely eclectic, yet charmingly engaging, travelers soon find that DuPage County — much like a favorite book — is designed to be enjoyed again and again.
