Downtown Libertyville is quaint & charming. This is a town that could have died when a huge mall was built a few miles away back in the late '70's. But, it didn't. It started bringing in restaurants and specialty shops, concerts in the park, farmers markets, lunch in the park, and sorts of entertainment to appeal to both a family and a sophisticate. The architecture styles appeal to every taste, and many vintage homes are being restored to their original beauty and magnificence. Come see for yourself!

I originally grew up in the southwest suburbs of Chicago (Orland Park). My wife and I having been living in Libertyville starting with renting and now owning a home. This is an EXCELLENT community, so much to do and plenty of night life! Libertyville has excellent schools and has been a fantastic place to live.
Libertyville is by far one of the best communities to raise a family in along with living close to one of the nation's biggest cities, but living far enough away to live without the crime and traffic. The schools are top notch, the downtown area is so perfect for a family stroll or late night bar hopping, and the people are extremely nice. I have nothing bad to say about Libertyville, it's a wonderful community!
