Eight years ago I was not happy about having to relocate to Illinois, after living in Massachusetts for 16 years.
While returning from a conference in Chicago I got lost and stumbled upon the Lake Bluff community. The town reminded me of the small NE Community I would be leaving.
I did some research and further exploration...the rest is history. I hand picked Lake Bluff for a combination of reasons....beach in my backyard, yet commuter rail up the street, excellent schools, close to popular cultural attractions, interesting home architecture, Mayberry with a designer touch atmosphere, rather magical, rather unique, rather hard to describe, come experience it yourself. I think you will agree on why Lake Bluff has won multiple awards in a variety of community interests areas.
