Glen-Ellyn is an affluent town located in DuPage County in northeast Illinois. It is considered a suburb of Chicago, which lies about 20 miles east of Glen Ellyn. Fulton is a great place to visit because it offers all the charm of a small town, just minutes to the excitement of the big city. The town is home to a summertime Farmer's Market and lots of special events like a Halloween Parade and Holiday Walk. In July, Glen Ellyn hosts Jazz Fest, a downtown festival featuring a line-up of top Chicago Jazz musicians, lots of delicious food, wine, beer and other refreshments. For a day in the city, nearby Chicago is known for its upscale shopping and dining along the "Magnificent Mile" and its ethnic restaurant districts, including Greektown, Little Italy, and Chinatown. Chicago's Navy Pier is 3,000 feet long and contains dozens of eclectic shops, restaurants, museums, exhibition halls and a 150-foot tall Ferris wheel that is one of the most visited landmarks in the Midwest. Chicago also offers dozens of museums, such as the Chicago History Museum, DuSable Museum of African-American History and the Shedd Aquarium. Glen Ellyn is also home to Churchill Woods Forest Preserve, which has 271 acres of open space, 2.5 miles of trails that follow scenic stretches of river and wind through savanna and prairie, including a 60-acre Illinois Nature Preserve.

Glen Ellyn Weather & Climate

Northeastern Illinois has a four-season continental climate with cold winters and warm, humid summers. The annual precipitation for this region is approximately 36 inches. The area can receive heavy snowfalls and experiences blizzards occasionally. Spring and fall are often the most pleasant in this region. Lake Michigan influences the climate of most of northeastern Illinois. Near the lake, cool breezes provide some relief from summer heat and the lake also tends to increase cloudiness and suppress summer precipitation. Winter precipitation is enhanced by lake-effect snows that occur when winds blow from the north or northeast. These winds allow air to pass over the relatively warm lake, boosting storm system energy and water content, leading to increased snowfall.
