About Lake Zurich
At the heart of the idyllic Village of Lake Zurich is its namesake lake. A charming boardwalk lines the lake, just steps away from Main Street.
The village regularly appears on “best places” lists for its highly-rated schools and affordability. In fact, Lake Zurich has been named one of the “Top Twenty Affordable Places to Live in the Country” by U.S. News.
As Chicago continued to expand northward, more people discovered that Lake Zurich offered an affordable alternative to surrounding communities. Housing developments began in the 1950s. Today there are a variety of single-family homes, custom new construction and some townhomes with neighborhood green space, ponds and parks.
Students attend the highly-rated Lake Zurich High School and Stevenson High School in nearby Lincolnshire.
The community has a small-town feel with several local events. Since 1942, Lake Zurich’s Alpine Fest has been a popular event, attracting more than 10,000 visitors for good old-fashioned carnival rides, entertainment and a parade down Main Street.
Residents have easy access to nearby I-90 and Metra stations in Palatine and Barrington.
