Centennial Beach helped Naperville come in at number 30 on the list. Centennial is not quite a swimming pool and not quite a beach but rather an old quarry spanning a property of about 45 acres that was constructed into a beach in the 1930s.

Beach towns were rated on affordability, weather, safety, economy, education, health and quality of life.
