Summer fun in The Glen

Many of my blogs begin with “one of the great things about living in The Glen” (in Glenview Illinois). This one is no different. Today’s “great things” blog focuses on the wonderful opportunities that Glen residents have for summer fun with family and friends.

Right dab in the middle of Glen Town Center, The Glen’s retail and restaurant “main street”, you’ll find summer fun in the form of its annual Summer Concert Series. Each Tuesday from June 28 through August 30, bands perform in an outdoor setting, each starting at 6:30 p.m. There’s food to be purchased though many Glen residents bring their own along with a bottle of wine for mom and dad…and sodas for their kids. They spread a blanket, enjoy the wonderful weather, and listen to music which changes from week to week…sometimes rock and roll, sometimes country, sometimes golden oldies, and sometimes Top 40 hits. The first concert will feature Windy City Rev Ups, a high energy “rock and blues” group that frequently plays at the House of Blues in the city. And as all of us who live here know, Glen Town Center is within easy walking distance of any home in The Glen…from the single family homes in Southgate, Chapel Crossing, and Landings to the townhomes of Tower Crossing and other Glen neighborhoods.

On Wednesday evenings, only a five minute drive from The Glen, we enjoy another concert series in Jackman Park. The Concerts in the Park series is sponsored by the Village of Glenview. Tonight’s concert presents Fool House (pop hits from the 90’s), and the June 22 concert will offer the Motown, soul and rock and roll sound of Second Hand Soul Band.

So, for those of you who may be thinking about moving to The Glen, these concerts offer a nice opportunity to see this spectacular development up close.
