From a source called “Livability:”

Crystal Lake, IL

This gem of a city is located about 50 miles northwest of Chicago and truly offers residents the whole package, but with more affordable housing costs.

In fact, according to a recent list of the 100 Most Affordable SuburbsCrystal Lake took the top spot thanks to its low average home price of just $301,750.

This suburb is one of the best places to live in Illinois.

Residents can sprawl out, own their own homes and enjoy more than 40 parks and recreation areas in the Crystal Lake Park District.

While it also has its own downtown with shopping and restaurants, Chicago is only a stone’s throw away.

  1. Would agree that Crystal Lake and surrounding areas are great.

    About Chicago ONLY being a stone’s throw away, the only reason to go to Chicago should be if you have to fly out of O’Hare.

    The original Mayor Daley glomed onto O’Hare Field to make it Chicago by designating the thin strip of land of the expressway into O’Hare as “Chicago”.

  2. Might as well say ‘hey Chicagoans! are you tired of fearing for your life every day now that your liberal policies have destroyed the city?

    move up here and start destroying our town next!”

  3. That’s the same type of strip annexation with which Turnberry was annexed to Lakewood.
