I work a town over from Wood Dale.
Nothing really bad about it, but there is nothing great either. You can take the train to the city.
You aren't far from Schaumburg, which has most of the shopping and entertainment in that area.
It's a small town that's filled with industrial parks. But they do a good job of keeping them separated though, unlike some of the surrounding towns.
Traffic is shitty along Route 83/Busse Highway.
Nightlife is pretty fucking dead for the most part, other than bars that cater to the folks that work in the industrial parks and want to knock a few back before they go home.
My brother's buddy lives there and owns a kennel.
