Glenview

A north suburban community with a lot of everything for everyone.

Welcome to Glenview

Perfectly situated just 15 miles north of Chicago between 90 and 294, this charming close-knit community offers a varietal blend of middle to upper class suburban housing gems. The residents love the nationally recognized education as well as the nearly 300 acres of public park space including 34 parks, three swimming pools, golf courses, and family friendly destinations all throughout town, there's always recreational activity available to bind families and the neighbors together.

Carrying one of the larger populations in Chicagoland's north suburban sprawl, its small town charm has never been lost. Anchored by its downtown area adjacent to some of the most desirable residential neighborhoods in all of the Chicago suburbs and expanded 20 years ago to include The Glen, a mixed use development with nearly every amenity imaginable, Glenview's a town proud of its history and focused on its future. 

What to Love

  • Tree lined streets with a vast selection of homes in size, scope, style, and price point
  • Multiple Metra lines taking you into Chicago
  • Nationally recognized Glenbrook South High School
  • Diverse selection of shopping and dining
  • Year long selection of community based events

What to Do

Home to a wide selection of dining fare, Glenview's dining scene is flush with generational staples and newer to the scene cuisine. The Valley Lodge Tavern, Hackney’s on Lake, and Grandpa's Place each offer their own take on the family friendly burger joint and neighborhood tavern. The Glenview House, in recent years updated by new ownership to bring it into the 21st century, still serves as the downtown anchor it was for the previous 150 years. And elevated dining options such as the massively popular Wildfire Steaks & Chops and its mid-20th century supper club vibe, Cafe Lucci and its fine Italian dining has been satisfying people going on four decades, and the other Italian staple Gusto in the heart of downtown all make their mark. 

A shopping destination as well, The Glen offers big box retail interspersed with smaller boutique shops, storefront lifestyle health and fitness, and even a movie theater. An open air plaza environment, it has been a welcome addition to town the last two decades.

One of Glenview's most desirable amenities is its family friendly destinations. Wagner Farm, with its horses, cattle, chicken, and other livestock sits comfortably in a residential neighborhood. The only one of its kind in the northern suburbs, time at Wagner Farm is both educational and fun wrapped into one afternoon. Similarly, historic landmarked, The Grove takes your family back in time to the 1800's. You'll discover 150 acres of preserved land in a wooded, quiet environment. Centered around the Kennicott House, an 18th century log cabin, your family will take a peek into pioneer times which are normally only read about in history books. And a more recent addition to town, you'll love the Kohl Children's Museum which, again, ignites young minds in a constructive, fun package. And lastly, there's three recently constructed pools about town, ensuring the family's aquatic enjoyment is addressed all twelve months of year.
