Elgin, IL

A nice small city with lots to offer - 3/24/2015
When I first moved to Elgin 2 years ago I did not like it. I lived in a mobile home park near the river and highway 90 in a senior community that over prices it's lot rent wanting $750 to $1000 per month. I felt like I was really isolated in that area no shopping and few eateries nearby. I purchased a condo further west. I love the Century Oaks Area off of Big Timber Rd. A good mix of single family, town houses and a few condo's close to Sherman Hospital. Shopping is just nearby and also down Randall Rd. I have discovered the symphony and The Center what a great family rec center. I enjoy swimming and taking walks near the river downtown. I feel safe here and especially in my Century Oaks area even late at night. I discovered the artists lofts and workshops a few weeks back and attended a writers weekend for free. I look forward to attending more workshops and fairs. People have been friendly and I have great neighbors. I work full time but I look forward to getting more active in the community. If I had children I would not choose to live here because the school system is laying off staff. Private school or home schooling would be your best options.
