Lindenhurst is a very small suburb with lots of good people. I think that it's a great community, and it's come together to help those that are in the hospital, not doing well, etc. The one thing that I would change is that there isn't that much to do while you're in Lindenhurst. There's a strip mall in downtown Lindenhurst, but a lot of businesses are going out of business because of the high rent of the landowner, and it's extremely unfortunate. I loved going to certain stores and restaurants in that strip mall, and some of them are gone. Other then that, it is a very quiet, small, good place to live.

Lindenhurst is a quaint town great for new families. The crime is very low and has only experienced one murder in the longest time. Most houses are very affordable, however the taxes are murderous. Illinois does suffer from an overtaxation issue with many residents moving to Wisconsin. The public services are top notch though. Roads are very nice and all public buildings look great. The diversity is very concentrated on the Caucasian market.
About equidistant from both Chicago and Milwaukee, takes about 45 minutes with no traffic to get to either which is pretty nice. There's not much to do locally other than your typical bar scene. Always great shows and festivals in the area though, home to Summerfest, Lollapalooza, Chicago Open Air Fest, near Electric Forest, and many others. Summertime can be really fun, but really expensive as well. This is not a cheap area in any way to be honest. Sales tax, income tax, and property tax is all extremely high moving up the closer you get to Chicago.
