Located just 35 miles northwest of Chicago in Lake County, the nearly 8,000 residents of Long Grove have a long history of making sure that growth is carefully monitored to maintain this haven from the urban sprawl many other communities near Chicago have battled. In order to keep the open spaces the Long Grove community is known for, residential properties must have a minimum of one acre and most are even larger. So while Long Grove’s population is small, the actual landmass of the Village covers approximately 18 square miles. The open spaces and natural vegetation that encourage residential privacy is protected by a variety of Village ordinances.
Careful planning was also used to maintain Long Grove’s Historic Business District in its downtown area. Boasting numerous specialty shops and unique dining experiences throughout the 120 business located there, Long Grove is often a destination for visitors seeking to find that special something or a taste of the extraordinary. As the first historic district in Illinois, Long Grove’s Architectural Board maintains regulations on the types and sizes of buildings, their use, and other details to keep the business district an extremely attractive area for visitors and residents alike to spend time.
As attractive as Long Grove’s historic downtown district is, the Village’s annual festivals also bring in visitors and give the community additional chances to celebrate throughout the year. Special festivities include the Chocolate Festival, Apple Festival and Strawberry Festival which highlight the tastes of local produce and treats. In addition, Long Grove residents celebrate Greek Days, Irish Days and an annual Arts Festival, each providing opportunities to taste cultural foods and enjoy the music with friends, family and neighbors.
