Welcome Home: Take a Look at Lake Forest


Check out the online, interactive Welcome Home Brochure.

It's your interactive guidebook to Lake Forest. 





There's an amazing arts community on the shore of a Great Lake.  With two symphonies and a thriving theater life.  A true college town rubbing shoulders with a nationally-ranked school system.  A place that corporate America looks to for dynamic living and working.  A town smack in the middle of two great Midwestern cities with two international airports.  A city where Bears freely roam and dogs have a place to play.  A community of magnificent estates and homes of every conceivable size.  A Market Square with restaurants and shopping and energy.  More than 800 acres of free and open space to explore the surrounding beauty of nature or take on the 29 miles of trails to hike, run and bike away the days.  

A place that welcomes people home to the passion and the purpose of great living.  

Lake Forest, Illinois.  Yes, Lake Forest.  Welcome Home.
