A Distinctive Getaway Close to Home – Long Grove,Il

Long Grove Historic Village is located just 35 miles northwest of Chicago, near Routes 53 and 83 north of Lake Cook Road. This little crossroads was settled in the early 1800s by German farmers who came to town to buy their supplies and have their horses shod. 

The original homes and businesses now bear plaques recognizing their importance to Long Grove’s history. The signature covered bridge and the village landmarks in the historic district have all been carefully guarded as the town evolved into a unique and charming destination for visitors. 

Additional Long Grove merchants and fine restaurants can be found outside of the historic district on Routes 83, 53, and 22.
