South Elgin boasts a beautiful riverside setting, along with a thriving business community, active organizations, involved citizens, and a host of nearby shopping, entertainment and recreational opportunities.
Visitors and residents alike all find something to love about this town. Anything that cannot be found right in town is just a short trip away.

Residents routinely travel to Chicago for work or recreation and gladly return to their hometown at the end of the day. Of course, with so much to do around town, who needs to look any further?
