    "I’ve lived in this neighborhood for 5 years plus and simply love it! The neighbors are friendly and fun. There is a neighborhood cemetery nearby that is very well kept and everyone walks there. There is an elementary school about a half mile and the high school about the same distance. The downtown is about a half mile in the other direction. There are two parades that are worthy to mention. One is the largest parade in Illinois held in October which is 3 blocks away and the other is the Memorial Day parade that is rather quite small but goes by right in front of the house."

    "How nice everyone is and the calm country atmosphere that Sycamore brings. It’s not to far from the big city but it’s not too close as well. They are shops and grocery stores right around the corner but you never get the feeling that it is too busy or hectic. I love the seasonal events that Sycamore puts on as well and the monthly newsletters they send out to all residents. "
