Recognized by Forbes as one of the most livable suburbs, the Village of Homewood is a vibrant and distinguished community.
Money magazine named Homewood was once named the third “Best Place to Live” out of 25 neighborhoods in the United States by Money magazine, and offers residents a fast commute, an award-winning park district, and ample green space. Locals enjoy area parks like Millennium Park, which has a .4-mile path, splash pad, soccer field, roller hockey, playground, picnic shelter, and Moss Memorial Garden and Nardoni Memorial Garden.
Homewood hosts approximately 60 outdoor festivals each year, and is home to a boutique hotel and several craft breweries. The popular Fall Fest brings live music, crafts, seasonal foods, and a chili cook-off to the village, and features vendors, a pumpkin patch, and pony rides.
A commuter-friendly downtown offers Metra and Amtrak service, and residents have convenient access to I-80 and I-294.
