Darien didn’t even crack the top 20 in West Suburban Living’s list of “Top Towns in which to Live" earlier this year, and that got you as well as former editor Lauren Williamson talking.
Here's what Lauren said:
The top spot went to our neighbors to the north in Hinsdale. Good for them.

So now with 2012 in the books, tell us in the comments what it is about Darien that makes you love living here!
