Local Reviews

I like the neighbors some of the neighbors and that it is quiet out here and I also like how it's walking distance to almost everything that you need

It is convenient for getting to main highways and out of the chiacgo area. The restaurants and shopping are good. Park districts and schools are good.

Pieoro's Pizza. Close to the lake. During the summer and warm months they have a food truck get together that is cool. Very close to Botanic Gardens amazing

Lots of locally owned businesses, near the lake, great restaurants who know your name and really care about the community

I raised my family here for 15 years, moved away for 20 years, and returned here because of amenities.

It is close to the train station. The homes and yards are nice. There are a variety of home types and sizes.
