I love living in Lincolnwood! 4 rating By Anonymous ( May 28, 2018) I love Lincolnwood, Illinois! Living in Lincolnwood, Illinois, puts me close to Chicago for work, but gives me a community with a small-town feel. This area is incredibly safe and the police always make sure that their presence is known.

The best areas in Lincolnwood, Illinois
...Read More include the fantastic parks here in the area. They provide tons of open spaces for outdoor games, as well as a few trails for taking a nice walk on. The streets here are so clean and the homes are incredibly well kept.

There are some cute diners here that are owned locally. They offer some of the best food around. If you enjoy reading, then you must check out the Lincolnwood Public Library. They have a great selection of books to check out.

The local school district is wonderful. All of the schools are found on one primary campus for the convenience of parents and teachers. You just feel like you are truly part of a family here. A feeling that I did not expect to find being this close to Chicago. Read Less
