I moved to Orland Hills two years ago, and couldn't be happier with my experience! There is lots of shopping nearby, and a wide range of restaurants to choose from. The neighbors are very friendly, and the village offers fun events such as the annual Party in the Park. I have access to a fantastic library and beautiful parks. I also feel very safe, as the police are very diligent about driving through the parking lot of my apartment complex and ensuring that it is a safe environment for us to live in.

As a current resident I would say as small as Orland Hills is, it is a close knit town. Most of the people in the area are nice as can be and get along well. During the summer time the party in the park that they host is the absolute best to go to and have fun!
Safe! The police care about the community and drive around frequently just to patrol the safety of others. There are man stores near by. It really is a central but quiet city.
