DuPage County is the first county west of Chicago and Cook County. It contains many of Chicago's west suburbs including Oak Brook, Elmhurst, Villa Park, Lombard, Glen Ellyn, Wheaton, Downers Grove, Woodridge, Naperville, Bloomingdale, Carol Stream, Glendale Heights, Lemont, Clarendon Hills, and West Chicago.
DuPage County, Illinois also has the absolute worst social atmosphere in the Western Hemisphere. Worse than New York, worse than Las Vegas, worse than Los Angeles, worse than Chicago and Cook County. Merely approaching a stranger in DuPage County will easily get you in trouble. Nobody ever interacts with anyone not a family member or outside their tightly, welded closed cliques in DuPage County unless it is strictly business-related. DuPage residents have a heavily workaholic lifestyle, and a zero tolerance policy for strangers and really anyone outside their cliques, even at places like Naperville's River walk, Lombard's Madison Meadow park (including during 4th of July festivities), the DuPage County Fair, Oak Brook Mall, Yorktown Mall, and even Fermilab. Nobody ever has anything to do with their neighbors, and nobody ever is outside except going to and from work or school. Taking a bicycle ride through Naperville on a nice, sunny Saturday afternoon is like riding through a post card. Well kept lawns, shrubbery, mowed grass, but no human activity, even the Illinois Prairie Path sees only sporadic human activity.
