Proud to Call Wauconda My Home

From Atlanta to Wauconda

Just about 9 years ago, my family was relocating to the Northwest suburbs from Atlanta.  Having lived in the area several years before, we had remembered hearing that Wauconda was a nice community….small town feel, great place to raise a family, etc… we decided to check it out.  I will never forget the first time I drove through town and the overwhelming feeling that I had found our new home.  It seemed to have everything we were looking for…..a  thriving  Main Street, all of the day to day conveniences all in one place, a school district we felt comfortable with, affordable homes, an active park district, and access to a major artery for commuting to larger villages and work.  It didn’t take long to find the perfect house in a beautiful neighborhood…..



Loving a Thriving Community — Wauconda

And now 9 years later, it has only gotten better and better.  Since moving here in 2004, we have been so fortunate to be a part of a fabulous community and have seen it blossom.  New businesses opening, old businesses being revitalized, student performance  improving year after year….and having become part of the community, we have been so impressed with the level of involvement from residents who truly love the town, businesses who work together to help each other succeed, a local government that is passionate about the growth and well  being of the city.  My family has relocated many times over the last 25 years, having lived in other states and other suburbs of Chicago, and we absolutely believe we have found where we belong.


Call Wauconda Your Home

If you are looking for a new place to call home, it would be worth your time to take a look at Wauconda.  Just a walk down Main Street will tell you a lot.  You will find great places to eat, taste wine, shop, sip a latte, enjoy live music, even get a haircut at an old fashioned barber shop…..not to mention the many enjoyable festivals throughout the year.  A few steps away is Bangs Lake, where on any summer day you will see boaters, fisherman, and kayakers….and plenty of ice fishing in the winter.  Check out our many residential areas, where you will find affordable homes which include lake side neighborhoods, planned developments, custom homes…something for every lifestyle and budget.

I am proud to call Wauconda my home….

    Nicole, this is a true love letter and I thank you for writing it. I have lived here since I was 4 years old, and I have seen this community change from a summer resort town, where we welcomed “summer people” every year, to a town where the people who live here year round can feel like we are on vacation all the time. We are involved, active, and social. We “KNOW” each other! We eat, and drink and listen to music, and dance together! We run together, and kayak, and boat and party. We raise money for charities, and we raise children who know what it’s like to be “first class”! I agree with everything you said, and more! Thanks for singing the praises of a town that is not just another concrete suburb, it is a home!

  2. Irene and Nicole I agree with all of the things you both said. I have lived here for over 14 years myself, and so happy to see the growth of the community as a whole. We have people that care and by that I mean genuinely care about Wauconda. I love the events, the businesses that all get involved and the people that participate in all things Wauconda has to offer.

    I too, am proud to call Wauconda my home!
