Happened by 9/22/2017 on day one of three, for the annual apple/carnival/craft festival. Still running 9/23-24/2017, so try to get there! Carnival rides for the kids stores open for browsing, bet you'll buy something!

Long Grove could be, and should be, a great Chicagoland destination, but these days there isn't much there to justify a long trip to visit. Lots of empty buildings. Seems like rent is too high to keep most businesses there. But it can't be easy...More

Trying to "shop small" this year, I drove out to Long Grove on a weekday afternoon searching for some unique gifts. It's been quite a while since I was last there. Many of the buildings are vacant or being renovated or are for sale. The...More

We visited downtown Long Grove after visiting the confectionary. About half is being renovated and worked on and the rest is pretty good. The stores were priced well and interesting.

Not as quaint as we remembered. Some of the cuter shops we used to visit are gone now. Seems like they are having trouble competing with nearby chains. Sad in a way.
