Even though its a pretty quiet neighborhood, there's always a couple of people walking for exercise and even if they don't know you they still greet you and that just surprised me when I first moved here because I didn't expect people to be this nice. You can always invite your neighbor over for a cup of tea and chatter for hours about anything. And what I specially love this place is that every other neighbor owns a dog! We recently got a baby pitfall because of this norm! Since I recently moved here I'm not familiar with community events/engagement but I have heard that there are block party every year.

From when I was one, until now, a high school senior, I have moved multiple times throughout my life. My father would always have to move whether it was for a job or we were in a financial struggle. When we first arrived to Glenview, I was so upset that we had to move yet again, however over the years I have realized that Glenview has become my home. The schools are friendly and welcoming, safety is a top priority, and there is always something fun to do in Glenview. The Glen is one of the most popular spots, which is an outdoor mall to dine, shop, look around, etc.
Glenview is a vibrant suburb north of Chicago. The town has a lot of parks and other interesting park district property, including the Grove, which has prairie and woodland to explore, and Wagner farm, a former family farm that the park district now runs as an educational and recreational facility. There is also a children's museum and a new downtown area, the Glen, with restaurants and shops, which is located in an area that formerly was a Naval Air Base. Glenview is connected to Chicago by the Edens expressway (I-94) and the Metra commuter rail.
