Working/Living in St. Charles


St. Charles is located in both DuPage & Kane counties 35 miles west of downtown Chicago.  International employers, innovative schools, beautiful parks, the Fox River & recreational amenities, and unique architecture have earned St. Charles its reputation as the Pride of the Fox!


We’ve been open for nearly two years and developed a very large following of locals.  It is great to see how this community supports your business regularly and that everyone is so welcoming of new businesses.  Everyone wants to come in and experience what you have to offer. — David and Juliette Reyes, The Finery & Blacksmith Bar


All 3 Micro-Trade Areas offer a variety of dining and entertainment experiences for our daytime population.  If you need to host a larger work gathering, there is no shortage of venues for working lunches, corporate events, and/or retreats.



There are numerous reasons to live in St. Charles.  The City and Fox Valley region are home to some of the best K-12 schools in Illinois.  The St. Charles School District consistently ranks at the top of districts in Illinois.


Local recreational opportunities are endless.  The facilities owned and staffed by the St. Charles Park District and area forest preserves are second to none in the Chicago region.
