In the immortal words of blues legend Muddy Waters, you might say Westmont has got its “mojo working.” The “father of modern Chicago blues” lived here for more than a decade until his death. A street near his former home is named “Honorary Muddy Waters Way.”
Westmont has grown more than 300% thanks to its proximity to all that Chicago has to offer. Residents enjoy a suburban lifestyle and easy commute downtown. Convenient Metra service is available at the Westmont Station on the BNSF Railway.
The village has nearly 18 parks with numerous Westmont Park District facilities including space for bocce ball, tennis and basketball courts, and soccer and baseball fields. Additional park features include paths, playgrounds, and picnic areas.
The DuPage County village also boasts a number of highly-regarded restaurants as well as retailers and fine arts.
