Welcome to Exploring Naperville. When I had a short period of unemployment, I took it upon myself to explore my new home of the Chicago Suburbs and this website was born. I eventually found a new job and no longer had time to continue my amateur journalistic exploits. However, photography continues to be a personal hobby, and a website makes a great place to compile my photographs. All of the Exploring Naperville posts will continue to be stored here. Who knows, maybe I’ll write a post or two, but I wouldn’t count on it.
Naperville, IL is a city of about 145,000 people located 30 miles west of Chicago. It is the 5th largest city in Illinois.
