Nothing. It's a trashy suburb with high taxes. It shouldn't be a village unto itself. There's better places.

It is quite and nice neighborhood riding bikes and taking a walk is also great Aldi is a great store to

My neighbor is big lots of parks it's grrat.I really enjoy it. It's awesome I really like it. I am going to have a little look around

The neighborhood has a friendly atmosphere and a lot of nature with a park within walking distance.

Our town has a small town feel. We can walk to parks and schools. We like to go to local restaurant to eat.

I like it is in walking distance to the grammar school and the kids can play outside. The neighborhood is very friendly.

About

Round Lake, IL

Overview of Round Lake

According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the population of Round Lake, IL was approximately 18,000 in 2010. This rural-feeling suburb is located about 50 miles northwest of Chicago, and is connected to the big city via both highway access and commuter rail. Because of the metropolitan area's rail transportation system, those searching for Round Lake apartments for rent could easily consider commuting to downtown Chicago. Round Lake residents enjoy easy access to regional amenities, a family-friendly way of living, and vast amounts of natural  landscapes.

Living in Round Lake, IL

Those searching for Round Lake rentals will likely be astounded by the village's recent growth. According to City-Data, Round Lake's population has grown by an incredible 213 percent since 2000. This means that in about ten years, the city's population more than tripled. Round Lake offers semi-rural living within reasonable driving distance to larger cities' malls, shopping districts, and more. As a result of its substantial growth, Round Lake is currently distinguishing itself as a place to set up shop for many small companies and businesses.

However, Round Lake isn't all work and no play. The city's median age is 31.5 years, which is more than 10 years younger than the statewide median age. Additionally, more than 32 percent of Round Lake's population is younger than 18. Round Lake is a popular destination for young families and professionals.

Those who are moving to Round Lake will want to consider the living costs of setting up house so far from many regional commuter destinations. According to City-Data, the village's cost of living is almost exactly on par with the U.S. average, but it is considered very car-dependent by Walkscore.com.
