Life in Elgin, Illinois is pretty good. With a small town feel but plenty to see and do, Elgin is a great place to call home. There are a lot of great reasons its motto is “Jewel of the Midwest.”

Elgin’s population has been growing for decades. Development in the area, including redevelopment downtown, have created cultural and leisure activities for its residents to enjoy in their free time. The Grand Victoria riverboat casino anchored downtown's redevelopment, and offers not only games but great dining and entertainment.

Historically, Elgin was known as home of the Elgin Watch Company — one of the largest producers of watches in the world from the 1860s to the 1960s. Its presence brought investment and prestige to Elgin, and its legacy and impact on the community continues to this day.

The Elgin History Museum is fascinating, offering exhibits on Elgin’s rich history. It is even housed in a building that was part of the watch company’s training academy. There’s also the Elgin Public Museum, built in 1907, which focuses on natural history.

For music lovers, the Elgin Symphony Orchestra is a cultural treasure not common to most cities of its size. The Hemmens Cultural Center, which the orchestra calls home, offers 1,200 seats and hosts other performances and events year-round.

If you prefer outdoor activities, Elgins natural surroundings have always been a draw. There are two nature preserves, Trout Park and Bluff Spring Fen, where you can get out and enjoy a diversity of natural plant and animal life.

Elgin offers a wide variety of outdoor and athletic activities. On the southeast side of town, the Elgin Sports Complex boasts ten lighted ball fields, ten soccer fields, and even a BMX bike track.

Many recreational options are available at Lords Park, which stretches over 108 acres and dates to 1892. Home to playgrounds, a fantastic zoo, hiking trails, and the Elgin Public Museum, it offers activities for everyone. A municipal recreation center dubbed The Centre of Elgin includes an aquatic park and a climbing wall; it is one of the largest such recreation centers in the entire U.S.

With the help of LawnStarter, a new service quickly gaining a reputation as “Uber for lawn care,” you can spend less time cleaning up your yard and more time enjoying all that Elgin has to offer.
