Once a small farming community, Algonquin has grown into a vibrant village with parks, shopping, restaurants, and local events.
From summer festivals to snowboarding, there are many things to do in this northwest suburb. Residents enjoy the area’s parks, nature preserves, and the scenic Fox River that offers hiking, biking, and boating. The town’s Riverfront Park is the site of popular events like Art On The Fox and the Founders’ Days festival.
Residents enjoy sprawling homes that take advantage of Algonquin’s beautiful land and scenic setting with porches and decks overlooking the Fox River, as well as rustic log homes, custom construction, and estates.
Algonquin has several shopping areas including Algonquin Commons and Algonquin Galleria. The village’s charming and historic Main Street serves as the heart of the village and has transformed throughout an involved streetscape project that began in 2019.
Algonquin offers easy access to I-90, and commuters can get to and from downtown Chicago via Metra stations in nearby Cary, Crystal Lake, and Elgin.
