South Elgin

South Elgin has been recognized as one of the best places to live in the United States by Money Magazine and CNN Money.

Known for its rich history, distinct culture, recreational opportunities, and beautiful natural surroundings, the village has grown while maintaining a small-town atmosphere. With a picturesque location by the Fox River, the community offers access to fishing spots, nature paths, and neighborhood parks, which are the site of summer movie nights and local events.

South Elgin is home to the Fox River Trolley Museum, which features a collection of antique railroad cars, electric trolleys, and locomotives, as well as relics of Chicago’s railways and transit lines. Residents also enjoy restaurants and shops along Randall Road, as well as the award-winning Gail Borden Public Library.

Commuting to downtown Chicago is easy as drivers are in close proximity to I-90, and there’s also a Metra train station in Elgin.
