I live in Libertyville, a suburb of Chicago, situated in Lake Country, then all of us are close enough to the sizable city to have simple access to the several amenities, then it’s only about an fourth’s drive to attend a Chicago Bulls or Blackhawks game.
I often buy tickets to concerts or theater productions in Chicago.
I appreciate to go shopping in the city. I unquestionably don’t want to live there, but the cost of residing is way too high, & I don’t enjoy the lack of space or privacy. In my opinion, Libertyville is one of the best sites to live in Illinois. It is an extremely safe section where most residents own their homes. It offers a suburban feel, & there’s plenty of pizzerias, parks & activities. The public schools are highly rated. The biggest challenge with the section is the weather. It tends to be windy, cold & wet for most of the year; Between the rain, snow, cold temperatures & windchill, I am often kept inside. It makes myself and others especially appreciate those rare mornings of sunshine & red skies, then fortunately, there’s consistently something fun going on in Libertyville. In the fall, there’s apple picking, hayrides & haunted corn mazes. In the Spring, I often go paddle boating at Independence Grove Forest Preserve. The Summer is the perfect time to visit Six Flags or Butler Lake! Plus, there’s live music, wine tastings & multiple festivals held right on Main Street. At any time of year, I enjoy hiking through the Edward L! Ryerson Conservation area. There are 471 acres of protected woods to explore. It’s cold in the Wintertide but the snow is just appealing.
