Located about a half hour's drive from Chicago (in ideal traffic conditions), the village of Justice, Ill., is a great place to call home. Although nearby suburbs like Hinsdale, Oak Lawn and La Grange get more buzz, Justice is a great option for families of all ages. Located along the Des Plaines River, Justice boasts a median resident age of 32.5, which is about 10 years younger than the Illinois state average of 42.2. This makes Justice a great option for families with children, especially those looking for an affordable suburb in which to live - Justice's cost of living index is within 5 percent of the national average, according to City-Data. Those searching for Justice apartments for rent will be pleased to discover this convenient and friendly Chicagoland suburb.
Justice is a great community for those looking to commute into Chicago or more commercial suburbs. According to City-Data, Justice loses about 38 percent of its population on workdays due to commuting. Residents generally commute via nearby Stevenson Expressway or the Tri-State Tollway (those new to Illinois will want to invest in an iPass!), which make commuting a breeze. However, there is no Metra commuter rail stop in Justice, so taking the train into Chicago probably won't be an option. Those searching for apartments in Justice will want to factor these transportation costs into their monthly budgets, as Justice is considered "car dependent" by Walkscore.com.
Justice residents will love the suburban vibe of their town. As a close-knit community, Justice involves community members in day-to-day town matters. A senior citizen club, historical committee, numerous youth groups and other activities will keep residents of all ages engaged, and will help new residents meet their neighbors.
Justice is home to a variety of family-friendly attractions, most of which are managed by the Justice Park District. Families can head to Veteran's, Gottwald Memorial and Eugene Danhoff parks for some fun in the sun, or can partake in various activities at the Lipinski or Community centers.
