Once upon a time, back in the 1830s, this is where the buffalo roamed. Today Buffalo Grove is home to residents who enjoy the village’s numerous parks, golf courses, lakes, pools and tennis courts.
The village, 30 miles northwest of downtown Chicago, was recognized by Money magazine as one of the best places to live in the U.S. Residents appreciate affordable homes with great schools, parks and community activities.
A few favorite attractions include Long Grove Confectionary and the Raupp Museum, which chronicles the community’s history. The village hosts two popular festivals every summer – a fine arts festival and Buffalo Grove Days, featuring carnival rides, craft booths and live music.
Homes include a range of styles and prices – from new construction to well-maintained homes dating back to the 1950s. Neighborhoods include subdivisions with parks, sidewalks and plenty of activities.
Overlapping Cook and Lake Counties, students are served by four school districts and three high schools, including Buffalo Grove High School and the nearby Wheeling High School and Stevenson High School.
Commuting or visiting downtown is easy with the village’s train station on Metra’s North Central Line.
