Let’s see, my son is at a school event until 9 p.m. My husband and I are tired tonight, and neither of us is in the mood to cook. What shall we do? Oh yeah, we live in The Glen where we can walk to fifteen restaurants. Not a typo. Fifteen places to eat within a couple of blocks of our home in The Glen!
The Glen is an upscale residential and retail development in Glenview Illinois, a close-to-Chicago, north shore suburban village. Early stages of development began about 16 years ago, and we still have some new construction in one of our nine Glen neighborhoods. The Glen community was inspired by the concept called new urbanism, a planning scheme that revives cities and reinvents suburbs. It’s based on the way cities and towns were built for centuries before the development of sprawling suburbs and cul-de-sacs. Homes in close proximity to shops, restaurants and services. More walking, less driving. Nearby public spaces. Everything within a ten minute stroll. That’s The Glen!
My family and I live in a townhome development, Tower Crossing, that borders Glen Town Center, our retail “main street”. Our choices tonight are varied. We can eat Thai, Italian, Mexican, sandwiches & wraps, burgers & fries, steaks, vegetarian or pizza. If I could convince my husband, we could even go to a sushi bar or to a wine bar with an upscale dining menu. (That’s my choice!) Here is a link to Glen Town Center’s website where you can find a list of all Glen restaurants and their menus. http://www.theglentowncenter.com/dine.html
