Typical Northwest Chicago Suburb. Wealthy enough to look down on other suburbs (especially Mundelein), while still believing they are
“down to earth” because they are not as rich as Lake Forest. Residents will often remind you that Libertyville is better than your town, often followed up with “we don’t do THAT in Libertyville, we do it THIS way.” The guys are the cookie cutter Dave Matthews band followers. They wear expensive sandals, sporting a $50 haircut made to look “shaggy”, smoking lots of pot, and claiming to be hippies while being die-hard republicans without really knowing why or following politics. The girls are devastatingly sheltered, but think they understand racism because “there was a black kid that went to my high school”. They can be heard saying, “we like totally have minorities too just like anywhere else. Like my doctor is totally Indian and my psychiatrist is Chinese or something.”
“Oh my GOD, you would NEVER see that in Libertyville!”
Village full of car dealers, has one of the still thriving downtown areas, LOTS of visable pride/support/etc for the HS team The Libertyville Wildcats, lots of rich and upper middle class people, pretty much the definition of southern Lake County. Libertyville is bordered by Mundelein and Vernon Hills which are similar villages/towns/etc.
Hey lets go to Libertyville!
A Chicago suburb, comparable to the classic north shore suburbs, just not directly on the lake. Characterized by new money and an amazing high school football team, Libertyville provides for an excellent, although typical, upper-middle class lifestyle. When in the town, one will notice a cute yet quaint historical downtown area, as well as an abundance of car dealerships. Affectionately called L-ville by those who live there.
Q: Which Chicago suburb is better than you?
A upper middle class to low high class community, contrary to popular belief, is apart of the north shore. Though it is not actually on Lake Michigan, many experts have classified it as apart of the north shore. Home to 4 different grammar schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school, it is known for it’s excellent schooling system. About 40 minutes from Chicago, 30 on a good day. The girls are seen sporting black leggings from lulu lemon, half zip hoodies from Victoria’s Secret/ Pink, 200 dollar Ugg boots, a white Iphone, and a starbucks cup from one of the two locations in town. The boys claim to be hippies because they smoke lots of pot and wear tie-dye shirts with grateful dead logos on them. Pretty much all the kids smoke pot and go to the rave and take E there. The moms all sit at home all day and go grocery shopping and clothes shopping, and wait for there stuck up Bratty kid to call and ask for some money or a ride somewhere. The dads all go to work all day to pay for they’re mansions, taxes, bratty kids, and oh yes, the clothes there wives put on there credit card without telling them.
Libertyville kid: “Mom, can I have some cash, and I need a ride to a party.”
Libertyville Mom: “Sure honey i’m just checking out at Saks, I’ll be home in 20!”
upper middle class suburb north of chicago. not as rich as lake forest to the east, but richer than pretty much the rest of lake county. kids from libertyville like to consider their town part of the north shore, except their missing the most important part of being considered north shore-which is of course the lake. the highschool is pretty highly ranked, and kids are smartish. an obscene amount of fakebaking, jeepdriving, pot smoking,northfacing and school spirit can be observed among the students at libertyville highschool. takes forever to get into the city driving but takes like 40 minutes on the train. has a “historic” uptown area where kids that cant drive walk around. the mcdonalds is incredibly inconveniently located. dats pretty much it
Where are you from?
Really? because Im pretty sure Libertyville does not touch the lake.

“New Money” means people who have vast sums of wealth, such as CEOs of multinational corporations and the like, NOT people whose parents own local car dealerships or small businesses and live in million dollar homes. I promise. I live in Libertyville and I know of no family that would be considered “new money”. New Money is also a rather derogatory term, as it implies that they are people who have money with no sophistication or social graces to use it, so I don’t understand why people would be eager to apply that term to themselves. I would define it as a nice, very upper-middle class suburb with a historic downtown district, excellent schools (with equally excellent athletic and musical programs), and a nice place to live. As much as many people would like us to be, we’re NOT part of the North Shore- we have no access to the Lake! I’d probably also define it as a town that seems to have a lot of people who are full of themselves, judging by the first definition.
Libertyville is a northern suburb of Chicago
burb on the northwest side of chicago. part rich, part working class. getting harder and harder with time, as there were two drug related murders last year. boring as hell town, nice downtown, way too many car dealerships. A ton of support for the highschool sports teams, the libertyville wildcats, especially there championship winning football team, which is known for violent defenses that play dirty and injure people. most residents cant wait to get the fuck out. often called Lville, Ltown, LV. called preppy by mundelien, called white trash by lincolnshire.
