It’s fitting that Lindenhurst was named after a tree. Linden trees surrounded the community’s original farmhouse, set among several Lake County Forest Preserves.
Residents here enjoy the great outdoors with plenty of recreational activities – from hiking and biking paths, picnic tables, and dog runs to cross-country skiing and fishing.
Every August, the village celebrates its heritage with Lindenfest, a four-day festival that includes carnival rides, a parade, pageant, food, and live entertainment.
Nearby I-94 and U.S. Route 45 provide access to surrounding suburbs and downtown Chicago.
