The Village of Long Grove is unique among suburban communities - an oasis from suburban sprawl where residents can enjoy a relaxed and rural lifestyle. The village covers about 18 square miles, which translates into many acres of open space. Named for the groves of oak and hickory trees that covered a vast area that now includes the Deer Grove Forest Preserve, the village of Long Grove is a Lake County treasure.
Long Grove may be best known for its Historic Business District which attracts visitors with specialty shops, fine galleries, boutiques and special dining along the cobblestone sidewalks. Sensible planning and carefully styled merchandise have produced a unique retail business community.
Home sites are often multi-acre in size. Historic farmhouses, country mansions, Cape Cods, and stunning custom-built Tudors are among the housing choices. Transportation is convenient and easily accessible on Metra rail and major highways including the Edens Expressway (I-94), the Tri-State Tollway (I-294), and the Northwest Tollway (I-90.
