Mokena Illinois is about 30 minutes southwest of Chicago.
It has a small town feel with great access to the Chicago area via I80 and I355.
Small to medium homes are priced in the very affordable $250K price range but larger, custom homes are certainly available and will not disappoint.
More modest ( but very nice ) check Pheasant Ridge subdivision.
Upscale subdivision suggestions include Foxborough and Ginger Creek.
The schools are one of Mokena's best features including the Lincolnway High School District.
