Long Grove Reviews

We've lived in Long Grove for 10+ years and love it. The large lots, forest and great conservation areas make it feel so private and pastoral, yet it's close to everything with good train service into the city on two different lines. And the best high school in the state (Adlai Stevenson) in my opinion! Downtown LG (meaning the village proper) took a hit in the recession but it is coming back with several new restaurants and businesses now open. Still very atmospheric and New-Englandy.

Long Grove is a precious little suburb outside of Chicago. The down town area has been mostly conserved from what remained as of decades ago. This includes an old mill farm now turned into a bakery, a historic covered bridge, and cobblestone brick sidewalks that haven't been touched since they were first played down. In addition, the town hosts four festivals every year including chocolate fest and apple fest which brings the town to life and the streets flood with people. As for the people in the town, the town is also filled with the friendliest shop owners that one could ask for. They are your typical small town retailers who know all the regulars by name and never fail to greet you with a smile. This said, the only reason I cannot give five stars is due to the fact that new owners are beginning to disrupt this "old time" town and modernize it. By inserting slot machines into a classic town tavern, they are slowly disrupting the image.
This town is quite historic, people from all over come to visit it during all of the seasonal festivals. The town is very into decorating for all of the holidays and festivities. It is quant and wants to remain a historical town rather an upgraded town. The food places are very good and the shops are cute - slightly overpriced. The residents are all friendly and welcoming. It is very safe yet still close to other major stores like grocery stores and pharmacies.
