"Voted best place to raise a family"

Great location. Best neighbors ever. Town motto is "Where friendliness is a way of life" and they live up to it. District 57 and 214 Prospect High are the best schools! Offers academics, sports, choral dept. band, art... lots more and have won awards and top honors in all of them
Park system offers many activities for babies to seniors. Great golf courses. Shopping with
the first indoor mall in America that is getting a new facelift with a complete remodel.
Commuters dream with Metra. Close to downtown Chicago and all the different world class
museums and aquarium and planetarium. Lake Michigan offers miles of beaches and
trails to enjoy. Lots of advantages you will not find anywhere else.
