Nestled in Lake County, Illinois, we love the mode of life in the village of Libertyville.
It’s close enough to Chicago that residents can easily enjoy all the city has to offer, while also being part of a close-knit and friendly community. We love working with the people of Libertyville for this and many other reasons.
If you’re looking for ways to get out and enjoy what the area has to offer, consider any of the following destinations:
Martytown – The National Shrine of St. Maximilian Kolbe
This picturesque destination is located on Park Avenue and is a favorite for people who want to sit and think. You can learn about the life of Maximilian Kolbe, a martyr who lived in Poland and Japan. Not only is the cathedral amazing, the grounds contain many interesting features to explore.
Richardson Corn Maze
Each fall, people come from far and wide to explore the four corn mazes that combine to make the World’s Largest Corn Maze. How quickly can you solve the puzzle and make it out? When you’re finished navigating the pathways, enjoy a meal in the wooded picnic area, where you’re surrounded by the beauty of nature. If you have the need for some thrills, the 50-foot slide will supply just that. Or, you can get your heart pumping using the free pedal carts. For a more relaxed way to explore the area, come on a weekend and enjoy a free wagon ride. If you make a reservation, your group can use one of the campfire sites.
Ansel B. Cook Victorian Home Museum
Take a walk back in time and see how people lived in Libertyville over a hundred years ago by visiting this historic house, which is situated in Cook Park. The Libertyville-Mundelein Historical Society operates the home, which was originally constructed in 1876 and later was left to the village. It's become one of the most comprehensive Victorian museums in the county, making it a must-see for all residents, even if you're not a huge history buff.
Adler Memorial Park
Pretty much whatever you're into, this park caters to it. Contained in it are facilities for ice skating, a baseball diamond, cross-country skiing pathways, sled hill for snowy days, swimming pool, volleyball courts, and even a concessions area. The disc golf course is well-regarded, especially since it provides plenty of challenges with areas of thick trees, rolling hills, and the Des Plains River acting as a water hazard.
People of all ages can really enjoy this park, making it a popular destination for families. Gather with others at the picnic areas, use the grills to prepare food, walk or run the various pathways, and explore the historic site. You can walk through the tranquil flower garden in the warmer month, soaking in the beauty.
