A very conservative middle to upper-class suburb, but a very safe area to live in. A good place to be if you don't really like to be bothered. Very close to attractions such as Woodfield Mall (largest mall in Illinois) and Deer Park town center; the shopping is abundant.

Kildeer is a relatively small town, so there is not much to do. There is a shopping center, which has a plethora of restaurants and stores, but other than that, there isn't much.
Personally, I am heavily involved in my health and fitness. I encourage those who unhealthy habits to become healthier by working out and eating healthier more nutritious food. Most teenagers are active in this area, as well as a good amount of adults. Hospital facilities for the most part are advanced.
