We love video tours as a way to visit communities without having to get in the car - especially with current gas prices.
The video above takes you on a corporate-toned tour of downtown Downers Grove, but does provide a decent look at what you'll find there. If your checklist for your next move includes finding a suburb with a destination downtown and Metra access to downtown in less than half an hour, add Downers Grove to your list.
The Downers Grove Visitors Bureau's Web site has a calendar of events that you can use to plan a good time to visit. Attending a busy community event will expose you to the way life's lived in Downers Grove and the people who live there.
