Driving in almost any direction from downtown Chicago the suburbs blur into one another, the boundaries indistinguishable. Not so with Sycamore.
You have a genuine sense of arrival when you reach Sycamore, since you had to traverse miles of sparsely-settled land to get there..
Despite its recent growth, Sycamore remains very much a distinctive small town, proud of its history and confident in its future.
In the video you can join me and Liz Mallin, who heads up sales at Reston Ponds, a new home development at the edge of Sycamore, for a drive around the area. The second and third videos from our drive are at YouTube.
