If Oak Park is too big and you want to be that close, then I can only think of Hinsdale as being smaller enough to make a difference, yet close enough to be that convenient.

We've decided to look at La Grange, Clarendon Hills and Hinsdale. If you have any more suggestions, feel free to say.

Default Nice places to live, but added distance might reallly stretch commute ...

I have worked in the Loop with folks that had a pretty tolerable commute to NW Indiana via the rail lines, but getting to the Med Center district generallly adds complexity to one's commute, and the hassle of off-hour calls to the hospital can be quite unpleasant in a NWI snow squall...

The google maps show that the distance roughly doubles and I think the estimate for travel time is very generous too -- probably more than double: La Grange, IL to Munster, IN - Google Maps

Other towns between / around the ones selected are decent options too, no reason to skip over Western Springs for instance...

There is also Hyde Park but I don't know about the schools. My children made us grandparents.
