I've loved living here. It has been such a lovely place to call home and it such a friendly and great environment to live in. Very family friendly, everyone is so kind and welcoming! So many things to do in this small-ish town. Springhill Mall and all the restaurants make this town have endless things to do. You can always find something to do; walking to the park, going to the mall, eating frozen custard or even going into the amazing Around the corner candy store!

I am a current residence of the West Dundee area. The neighborhood that I am currently living in is very quiet and friendly. Since I do live alone and I am a young person I do find that I'm safe in my home. There is wonderful places to have dinner or lunch, they also have a few places to grab some ice cream. which I really enjoy. I can see myself raising a family in this town. The bike trail is very close to my home and walking on that path is my favorite thing to do. I recommend this town to any looking for a new place to live or to raise their families. The People in this town are very friendly and down to earth. I do find that since I am young and live alone that I was able to find somewhere affordable to live and the location is very well maintain and clean. My job is also in West Dundee, and it takes me about 10 minutes to get there with ease. I can see myself living here for a long time.
We own a home in West Dundee! It is such a great town. Fun little shops on main street and so many amazing community events around the holidays and all summer long.
