Compare South Elgin to Top 10 Best Places
Everyone knows everyone by first name in this historic town 40 miles west of Chicago. South Elginís small-town charm comes from a close-knit community and a long history--it was established in 1897. A big draw is the Fox River, where anglers can often be seen wading waist-deep. In the last decade, South Elginís award-winning parks and recreation department, and a healthy economy driven by small businesses, have attracted new developments to the area--and with them, new big-box stores and restaurants. --A.W.Subscribe to Money Magazine
