Great area! It's pretty safe, pretty diverse. It's safe to say that it's mostly a privileged area. Restaurants and shopping boutiques/corners are everywhere!

It is a very nice community. It has a great school system across the board. From kindergarten to community college, students will be receiving an amazing education from teachers that truly care. The schools provide exceptional resources to the students. They provide after-school space for students that have parents that are still working after-school.
I have lived in and around Vernon Hills for my entire life. It has a great suburban feel with the activity of close to a city. It is about 20 miles from the city of Chicago, but the amount of stores and activities within the suburb make it easy to stay put!
