Hodgkins is a great place to live. Centraly located, near theater, restaurants, and shopping. The village offers 2 parks for the kids (one with a splash pad free to residents). The library and park district offer plenty of events and activities for kids and adults. Very family friendly, quiet, safe community. Love it!
