    Hello:
    My niece just called me and she just offered a position in Libertyville Illinois. Anyone on this site either live in Libertyville, or know of it? My niece lives in Milwaukee, and I am the closest she has to a father since he was killed in a farm accident a few years ago. Is this a safe area? Anything you can tell me whould be appreciated. Here in Wisconsin we look suspiciously at flatlanders, if you know what I mean? (JUST KIDDING)

    Lovely, affluent, upscale, clean, good restaurants, lots of traffic cops, some very expensive homes, but most people commute there. As nice as can be found in America.

    My son-in-law is a firefighter in Libertyville. We have attended several community events in the area. Very nice area, seems to be mid-to-upper middle class area. Very clean, good sense of community. I would be comfortable with my family there.

    Libertyville is in Lake County Illinois, north of Chicago by about 30 miles. It is considered an 'upscale' community, meaning that there are lots of people who live there who make good $. It is not far from Lake Michigan and some folks consider it to be part of the 'North Shore' group of communities where many of the prosperous folks live and / or work.

    Check out their website. http://www.libertyville.com/

    I would like to thank everyone that responded. In the very near future I plan to take my niece to Libertyville and possible look for housing. She just accepted a very good paying job, and it sounds like she may need it to possible pay for rent. I went on the computer and they are saying that it is 55 miles from Milwaukee. Wonder if she would be better off to live in Milwaukee and drive to work. The apartment she is living in is really nice and priced right.
    Thank you all for your help.
    Steve

    Steve rentals are very reasonable now with the economy in the dumper even in Libertyville ... The 55 miles can get to be a hassle in the winter months because they are close enough where they still get the lake effect snow and driving in that can wear you down pretty damn fast ... Have to weigh one against the other just for kicks ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Libertyville liked to lay claim to Adlai Stevenson when he still thought he was popular. When he was defeated by Eisenhower the campaign slogan was "It Would Have Been Sadly With Adlai". The next time he ran, they used "Adlai's The Answer" as his slogan, which was immediately countered with "If Adlai's The Answer, What's The Question?". He did, however, have the distinction of being a Governor of Illinois that didn't end up in the graybar hotel. Huzzah!
