I truly value my experiences growing up living in Itasca. Albeit small, the town offers a variety of restaurants, parks, and local businesses that are, for the most part, very enjoyable.
My family and I moved to Itasca about 18 years ago and we have loved it ever since. Itasca, IL is a great community for all people. Kids on every block, all choices of housing to live in, and many schools and jobs in the area to attend. Every time I come home from college for the weekend or for a break I always get the warm feeling of being back. Growing up here provided me with opportunities left and right and if I could go back and change anything about growing up here, I wouldn't. I love it here.
