Forest Lake

Forest Lake is part of the Northwest Suburbs. Chicago's northwest suburbs, encompassing Cook and McHenry counties, offer residents abundant options in education, housing and recreation. Highly-regarded communities in the northwest suburbs include Arlington Heights, Schaumburg, Inverness, Long Grove, Lake Zurich, Barrington and Kildeer.

Charming downtown areas offer residents unique dining and arts and culture, and mix well with larger estate-sized lots and farms, found more frequently in the farther northwest areas. Popular home styles include bungalows, Victorians, farmhouses and Queen Anne's, with many newer developments featuring English Tudor and Country French architecture.

Students in the northwest suburbs attend award-winning schools, including Barrington High School, Adlai Stevenson High School, and John Hersey High School. Transportation in the area is served by the Union Pacific Northwest railway, the I-294 North and I-90 Northwest Tollways and interstate highways, including US Highway 14 and US Highway 12.

Popular attractions in the northwest suburbs include the LEGOLAND Discovery Center, Medieval Times, the Lynfred Winery, and the Arlington International Racecourse. Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg is Illinois' #1 tourist attraction, offering almost 300 stores and restaurants under one roof.
