Lake Villa, Illinois, is a village in the Lake Villa Township. North of Chicago and just south of Wisconsin, Lake Villa is surrounded by lakes that were left over after the glaciers retreated. Though this part of the country is still known for its frigidly low temperatures in the winter (and very muggy high temperatures in the summer), the current weather patterns have nothing on Illinois’ prehistoric past. But worry not, because you won't be sleeping outside, anyway. At least not if we have anything to say about it!

The Long and Short of Lake Villa
Lake Villa has a fancy-sounding name and that’s no accident. This village started out as a high-end resort town. When the noise, contract signing, and business meetings all got to be too much, the rich, famous, and powerful would escape the grit and filth of nearby Chicago to the placid countryside of Lake Villa. Just ask E.J. Lehmann, the "Merchant Prince of State Street." In the late 1800s, a nice hotel and a quick railroad ride helped make Lake Villa the Lake Geneva of Illinois.
Lake Villa's reputation has held up over the years, as the Chicago Tribune can attest. It’s still a popular location for people who want to get out of the chaos of the city but the commute is a little rough, at about an hour and a half by train. At least you can play games or take a nap if you’re riding the train into work!
Lake Villa in a Nutshell
Today, Lake Villa is a modestly upscale city with a median income of between 65,000 and 75,000. In the past, the population was primarily Polish, but today there’s quite a lot of diversity in the area.
This is also a very family friendly village, with 6 elementary schools, 2 junior highs, and 4 high schools. There are also 3 private schools in town, in case you’d prefer to send your children to a non-secular place of education. You can learn more about the local schools by clicking here.
