The dichotomy of Glenview is inspiring to me.
On one hand we have a modern, clean, safe community.
Glenview is a neat and orderly place to live, with the sleepy friendly vibes you normally only get from a very small town. This is a tightly-knit community that embraces different lifestyles and religions, and that is one of the reasons I love it here. On the other hand, Glenview still has a strong connection to the past, and there are some places that feel like they haven’t changed in a hundred years or more. One of the more fascinating places to visit in Glenview is called Wagner Farm, which is a small piece of the massive farm first set up by the Wagner family in the 1850s. Nearly 175 years later and the community of Glenview maintains it as a local park, so that everyone can take a peek into the past. Don’t go to Wagner Farm expecting air conditioning, of course, the place is too authentic for that. I prefer visiting the farm during the winter, because the hot summers make the lack of A/C too overwhelming for me. My favorite place to visit in Glenview, and a place I visit once every few weeks, is called The Grove. The Grove has the best walking trails in all of Glenview, and there are also animals you can interact with! Once again, don’t go to the Grove expecting it to be air conditioned, but it’s still an amazing and fun time. In Glenview it’s easy to enjoy local history, and then go shopping afterward.
