A charming north suburban community, Deerfield makes a convincing case as one of the best places to live in Illinois. Residents enjoy a laid-back lifestyle complete with lovely homes, a top school system, and an active, welcoming community.
Deerfield was recently rated “one of the best communities to raise children” in the nation by Bloomberg. It’s easy to see why; the village offers great schools, youth programs, and top safety marks. That’s not all, however. Downtown Deerfield offers local restaurants as well as national and boutique retailers. The Park District maintains over 100 acres of parkland and fully stocked recreational facilities. Nearby attractions include the Ravina Festival outdoor music venue and the beautiful Chicago Botanic Garden. And, for a night out, the area has some cozy bars and lounges.
