The Village of Buffalo Grove is a montage of progressive urban areas and picturesque rural communities that overlap both Cook and Lake counties. The town is located 35 miles northwest of downtown Chicago and a short drive to Lake Michigan. Nearly 45,000 residents relish an eclectic selection of restaurants, shopping, live entertainment, outdoor recreation and employment opportunities.
The community's safe, real clean streets are lined with tall, lush trees. More than 400 acres of open land are devoted to the village's park system, which encompasses 45 park sites, two public golf courses and vast array of biking and hiking trails that wind throughout this peaceful community. In an article in Chicago Magazine March 2003, the community was ranked 2nd of 192 suburbs as the "greatest place to live" and for a real good reason. Affordable housing is readily available, the local school system is outstanding and public transportation is accessible.
The village's 2003 Street Improvement Program helped to improve the community's infrastructure. In addition, the local police department received nationwide acclaim as the first place winner in the 2002 National Chiefs Challenge for traffic safety programs. The real estate market is diverse, offering a wide selection of condominiums, townhouses and single-family properties. Emerald green lawns lead up to lovely Colonial or contemporary-style homes.
If you are considering a move to one of the Windy City's many suburbs, look no further than this beautiful area.
