I love Antioch! It is a very well kept city, quiet, and a little bit rural. There are plenty of places to eat and explore in the little downtown area. There are always different activities going on in the city and ways for everyone to get involved. One thing I would love to see more of would be more diversity. But overall a great place to live.

Small town with a lot of unique family owned stores downtown. It has all the essentials in a close distance. It also has a lot of options when it comes to food. There are a few different super markets and multiple fast food chains. Additionally, there are many smaller restaurants right downtown. Also, the neighborhoods are very safe. To go along with that there are multiple parks in Antioch, which makes it suitable for kids. Also, the school systems are very good here as well. This town also has a good location. It is about 25 minutes from Gurnee, IL, which has a mall, multiple dining options, and Six Flags Great America. Also, it is only about a little over an hour away from Chicago. The only thing I wish there was is brand name clothing stores/ a small mall.
We have lived in Antioch for 13 years and love our community. Antioch is a small town centrally located between Chicago, IL and Milwaukee, Wi. This distance allows easy access to the unique culture and activities the city life has to offer. Antioch, Il is also a 10 minutes drive east to the Chain of Lakes that hosts all fishing, water sport and snowmobiling activities as well as a 20 minute drive west to Lake Michigan. The small town charm of Antioch invites you to relax while browsing the quaint family owned shops, enjoying a delicious variety of restaurants, ice cream and candy shops or taking in a movie at our home town theatre. Antioch Parks Department proudly offers a variety of year round activities such as parades and festivals, a grand aqua center and plenty of beautiful nature filled parks to enjoy. Our family loves living in Antioch and feel our town and location are a unique blend of perfection!
