Living in Wadsworth is nice. Its located in between two cities just minutes away from a major highway. I like that Wadsworths has calming atmosphere equipped with nice suburb community homes. The downside to Wadsworth is, that it's a small city/town. Not too many people know of; or ever heard of Wadsworth. If I could change anything about Wadsworth I would suggest adding more restaurants to attract more people to that area.

Life in Wadsworth truly reflects it's motto of Village of Country Living. Unlike nearby villages, open space is not required in special areas. It is captured in the large one-acre or greater lot setting each resident owns. Some smaller lots exist in areas which were annexed by the request of property owners who desired to become part of the Village to avoid mandates by Lake County or other adjacent communities. Lots greater than 2 acres qualify to have one horse, if desired. Larger lots often qualify for other farm animals.
Wadsworth is a nice, quiet suburb. There are a lot of national forest preserves and horse tracks and farms around.
