Welcome to Tower Lakes
Located an hour northwest of Chicago, Tower Lakes is an upscale suburb that's truly one-of-a-kind. When you live here, every day feels like a vacation—but that could be because of the small-town feel, friendly neighbors, and serene lakefront locale. Although this cozy village only has a little more than 1,200 residents, you'll still be a stone's throw away from all your everyday conveniences. To top it all off, the area is also served by top-notch schools, always has something going on, and has plenty of homes with striking lake panoramas.
