What locals are saying

Vernon Hills started out as just a 200-acre farm in the 1850s. The community didn’t shed its agricultural roots for nearly a hundred years. As it developed, it was still just a far-north outpost of Chicago, until recently.

Vernon Hills is one of the northernmost parts of Chicagoland; in fact, it’s less than 30 miles from being in Wisconsin

Vernon Hills started out as just a 200-acre farm in the 1850s. The community didn’t shed its agricultural roots for nearly a hundred years. As it developed, it was still just a far-north outpost of Chicago, until recently.

Vernon Hills is one of the northernmost parts of Chicagoland; in fact, it’s less than 30 miles from being in Wisconsin. The town does have apartment rentals, with a wide variety of layouts and amenities. Vernon Hills offers a great quality of life. The down side to that is that you’ll pay accordingly for the higher standard of living.

Moving to Vernon Hills

Apartment complexes may allow you to bring your pets, but you’ll probably have to bring immunization records and pay higher deposits. You'll also may have to pay a slightly higher monthly rent in exchange for the privilege of bringing Fluffy and Fido. Some apartment complexes and townhomes may also have breed restrictions on certain types of dogs.

Vernon Hills even has 3-bedroom apartments for families with children. However, since families with children generally prefer to stay in the same place for longer periods of time, you may need to get on a waiting list until a vacancy opens up for an apartment with a larger number of bedrooms.

The other suburbs near Vernon Hills are equally high quality and desirable. Libertyville, Mundelein, and Lincolnshire are just some of the great places nearby that you might want to check out if you’re having trouble finding what you need right in Vernon Hills. It’s all part of the same region in Lake County, where you can have a very good quality of living.

Life in Vernon Hills

Even though Vernon Hills is very far outside of the city of Chicago, residents can still take advantage of the amazing Chicago public transit system. Metra routes run all the way from downtown Chicago up to Vernon Hills, with stops at many points in between.  I-94 is also a major highway that runs from south of Chicago, all the way up to Wisconsin; Vernon Hills also offers easy access to it for convenient travel.

Vernon Hills has a huge new library with lots of high-technology resources available. The city also has plenty of desirable shopping and restaurant options, so you won’t have to drive in to the city of Chicago to get the things you need. You can enjoy the big-city excitement of Chicago from a more comfortable distance.
