  • Housing While Joliet is a great place to live, it's not necessarily a cheap place to live. The median home sale price there is $110,000, and it continues to be a seller's market. It also has a very small number of housing vacancies - 6.37 percent - so it can be a little difficult to find just the right place for you to buy, rent, or rent to own. The annual residential turnover in Joliet is 14 percent, though, so it's not impossible to find a home there when you decide to relocate. Most residences in Joliet are single-family homes; there are nearly 10 times as many of them on the market than all the townhouses, condos, and multi-family homes combined. So if you're looking to rent or buy an apartment, Joliet might not be the best place for you.
  • About the City Lots of people in Joliet love to watch the races at Chicagoland Speedway and the Route 66 Raceway. But people who like to actually play sports can find lots to do in Joliet as well. There are several parks in the city, each of which offers sports leagues for both kids and adults. Golfers can play a round at one of the city's three public golf courses - Inwood, Wedgewood, and Woodruff - and skaters can ice skate at the Inwood Ice Area. There's not much to offer in Joliet in terms of professional sports, but luckily, nearby Chicago has professional basketball, baseball, football and hockey teams.
  • Nightlife While Joliet residents like sports during the day, they like to have a good time at night, and Joliet has no shortage of nightlife options. Chicago Street Pub is a local favorite; it serves bar food and great drinks, and there is live music on the weekends. Judge's is a great sports bar if you can't actually make it into Chicago to watch your favorite teams play live, but you still want to watch with a raucous crowd. The Department is one of Joliet's trendier bars; it is a place to see and be seen, and the atmosphere is great for anyone who likes more sophisticated surroundings when they drink.
  • Transportation Getting around Joliet is never a hassle, though residents say it's necessary to have a car. There isn't any public transportation right in the city, but it is possible to get to Chicago by commuter rail. Traffic getting into Chicago can be hectic, especially at rush hour and weekends, so if it's possible to take public transportation from your home into the city, do it.
  • Neighborhoods Joliet is so small that some people consider it a neighborhood unto itself. The downtown area is the hub of business and entertainment, but there are lots of great places to live throughout the entire town, whether you are looking for a rental apartment, purchasable home, or rental home.
