Homer Glen, IL: Close to Everything! 4 rating By Anonymous ( May 10, 2018) Homer Glen, Illinois is one of the best places I have ever lived. It is close to everything you'd want to be close to in the Chicago area. One of the best things I like about Homer Glen is the exciting and fair-priced housing market without the major property taxes you would gene ...Read More rally find in the Chicago area. Homer Glen is one of the best areas to invest in as it has more urban features with a rural and small town community.

Homer Glen is close to many of Chicago's attractions like the Bolingbrook Zoo or the Woodfield Mall which is one of the largest malls in America. The city is very green with lots of farm land nearby and many trees which make the autumn months very beautiful with all of the fall colors lining the streets.

Overall, Homer Glen is a very safe community and perfect for raising a family. It is also a very cost effective option for those who don't want to spend excess funds on property taxes. Read Less
