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!

We’ve lived in Antioch for the last 14 years. It is a very family friendly town. So many charming things about it - our Main Street is quaint, we have parades, parks, an aquatic center, lakes, organized sports, entertainment. We even have our own movie theater. Our schools are providing a great education while maintaining fiscal responsibility. The HS rivals those in much more affluent areas. Our kids are involved and care about the community. Families enjoy the sense of community. We do need more business to ease the tax burden but overall, Antioch is a great place to live and raise a family.
I've lived in this town my whole life. I believe that Antioch is just like any other little, old town. It isn't full of exciting things to do, but we are only a 20 minute drive to Gurnee (depending on traffic), which is home to Six Flags, many restaurants, a large shopping mall, etc. It's also nice that we are only an hour drive from Milwaukee and Chicago, which is full of activities, jobs, etc.
