With the most popular downtown in the area, Libertyville is fun day or night! Here, you’re commuting distance to Chicago either by tollway or convenient Metra train.
You’ll find a mix of older, mid-century era homes up to new builds in this hot market. Living within walking or biking distance to downtown is a super cool option, or you can choose to live outside of town in a super friendly subdivision, or even further out in the country setting near Independence Grove Forest Preserve.
Libertyville is the destination for area residents to enjoy the delicious independently owned restaurants with copious outdoor seating, trendy little shops, and the best farmer’s market on Thursday mornings!
Summers in the ‘Ville include the aforementioned Independence Grove for kayaking, fishing, picnics, walking or rollerblading the paved trail around the lake, an extended run or bike along the linked Des Plaines River Trail, or a fun jaunt with Fido at the dog park! Grab lunch at The Picnic Basket, to eat on the Cook Park lawn in the heart of downtown, then stroll over for a pastry and coffee at the new Conscious Cup Coffee Roasters. Other local faves include Hansa Coffee, The Firkin Restaurant, and Shakou. You will NOT be disappointed!
