Neighborhood — Lincolnshire, located 34 miles northwest of downtown Chicago, is among the most desirable places to live and work in the Chicago metropolitan area. It is known for its excellent schools, abundant greenery and easy access to regional transportation. The Des Plaines River travels through Lincolnshire, providing a nice divide for businesses and residents. Residential areas are nestled among parks and forest preserves east of the river, while commercial areas and office parks are concentrated to the west. Lincolnshire provides convenient access to Interstate 294 and is 45 minutes from downtown Chicago by commuter train. The town is home to award-winning Adlai E. Stevenson High School, consistently rated as one of the top high schools in the country.
Housing — Lincolnshire offers a wide variety of housing options including single-family homes, townhouses and condominiums. Many single-family homes are located on larger home sites of a half-acre or more, although there are several planned unit developments of greater density. Most residential communities are also located near parks and forest preserves.
Lifestyle — In spite of its relatively small size, Lincolnshire is a regional shopping, dining and entertainment destination offering several recreational opportunities. The village is home to nine public parks with a variety of amenities ranging from tennis to fishing and swimming. Spring Lake Park is the town's main park and hosts the annual Fourth of July festival. It also has a lake and beach. Another attraction is the Lincolnshire Marriott, a resort and conference center with four restaurants, a live theater, an 18-hole golf course and more than 40,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space.
