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!

Libertyville is a small yet bustling town in Northen Illinois. Its people are kind, welcoming, and heartwarming. The small town has an amazing downtown area where you can dine, shop, catch a movie, and so much more. There is nowhere else in the world that will make you feel more at home than when visiting some of the simple ascetically pleasing coffee shops like Hansa. Or attending an event at the local high school. Whether you're into sports, art, or music, the high school always has a new event or show ready to be seen.
Classic small town with great comfort and community. The town is able to provide many local attractions and entertainment for everyone living in it. The Downtown Milwaukee area is not only aesthetically pleasing, it really reassures the town's safety- kids are able to walk to the local library or convenience store right after school worry free, and families are able to enjoy running or biking throughout too.
