There’s no denying it: there are plenty of places in Illinois that are downright beautiful and full of excitement.

Unfortunately, not all towns and cities in IL are so lucky.

Just like in all U.S. States, there are definitely some boring places within Illinois’s borders. You know the places: the ones where everyone has an AARP card and the most exciting thing they do all day is post a picture of their grandchild on Facebook.

Like Lake Forest, for instance. In our latest analysis, we found that this city was the most boring city in all of Illinois. But don’t feel bad if you’re a resident of Lake Forest. There are plenty of other boring, lackluster places in Illinois as well.

Here they are. Try not to jump out of your seat with excitement:

  1. Lake Forest
  2. Hawthorn Woods
  3. Inverness
  4. Spring Grove
  5. Oak Brook
  6. Lake Bluff
  7. Homer Glen
  8. Long Grove
  9. Campton Hills
  10. Glencoe

Before you get all upset if your city’s name is on the list, rest assured that we didn’t use personal opinion when it comes to what classifies a city or town as “boring” or “exciting”. We crunched actual numbers to figure out which towns are statistically more boring.

And by the way, these are the most exciting cities in Illinois: Urbana, Champaign, Charleston, DeKalb, Normal, Carbondale and Chicago. That seems about right.

How we determined the boring cities in the Prairie State

To figure out how boring a place is, we rely on a complex algorithm that factors in things we generally think make people exciting, and then we figure out which cities have the least number of those exciting people. Here are some of the things people tend to think of as making a city’s population boring:

  • % of Population Over 35 (higher is more boring)
  • % of Married Household (higher is more boring)
  • Average Age (higher is more boring)
  • % of Households With Kids (higher is more boring)
  • % of Households with People Over 65 (higher is more boring)
  • Population density (lower is more boring)

Then, our algorithm generates several lists of the cities that have plenty of residents with high rankings in all of these categories. After a crunching of the numbers, a list of all of the cities magically appears listing them from most boring to most exciting.

For this list, we used every Illinois city that qualified for our rankings based on having a population of at least 2,000 residents. This keeps us from prejudicing our rankings by including very small pockets of retired people.

Grab your rocker and hold on.

4 thoughts on “These Are The 10 Most Boring Cities In Illinois

  1. You say that the algorithm is unbiased and that the data isn’t influenced by your opinion, but all of the categories are based on what you “generally think” make for an exciting town. You assume that married people, people with kids, and people over 65 years old are boring. Your “data” and “science” is flawed.

  2. Urbana-Champaign is only “exciting” on your list because practically none of the people there are married because it’s a COLLEGE TOWN! I’ve been there, and I wouldn’t call it “exciting” either.
