Lake Zurich - cited by Frommer’s as one of the top 100 “Best Places to Raise Your Family”

The Village of Lake Zurich is located in southwestern Lake County approximately 37 miles from downtown Chicago. The Village is an established residential community, which traditionally served as a market center for surrounding rural areas and, earlier in the 20th century, as a popular summer resort.
The population has more than quadrupled since 1960, as the Village has shared in the economic growth that has come from an expanding Chicago metropolitan area. Lake Zurich has developed into a community with above-average wealth and housing values, and has a balanced tax and revenue base.

Long Grove,Illinois -Yesterday's Charm,Today's Lifestyle

Long Grove may be best known for its specialty shops and special dining. Visitors travel long distances by car and chartered bus to spend a day in our Historic Business District. Downtown Long Grove contains some 120 businesses. With few exceptions, all are open seven days a week, all year long.

The success of our turn-of-the-century shopping environment is not just luck. After World War II, when the Village as we know it today began taking shape, a need to preserve the historic value and flavor of the district was recognized. As a result, the first historic district in Illinois was created in 1960 by Village ordinanceLong Grove is a charming four-season village with more than 80 shops, galleries, and restaurants located 35 miles northwest of Chicago in southern Lake County. Stroll our cobblestone sidewalks and enjoy the relaxed shopping atmosphere all year around. Click Here to Search for Long Grove Homes for Sale
