City of

Wheaton

Incorporated in 1859, Wheaton serves as the County Seat of DuPage County and is located just 25 miles west of the City of Chicago. Wheaton has repeatedly been recognized by Money Magazine as one of the best cities in all of Illinois to live.  Top ranking schools, beautiful parks, and unique shops and restaurants add to Wheaton’s charm.

Wheaton’s two train stations offer easy and efficient travel for both commuters and explorers of downtown Chicago. And for those who like to travel by bicycle or on foot, Wheaton is the heart of the Prairie Path, a multi-use nature trail that spans more than 60 miles across DuPage, Cook and Kane Counties.

We invite you to discover Wheaton’s historic downtown, modern shopping districts and perfect blend of beautiful homes and successful businesses. Welcome home.
