Things to do & places to see in Homer Glen
Although Homer Glen is considered a suburb of Chicago, there is quite a bit of countryside around it. You can see rolling cornfields and several fruit & vegetable farms. Many of these sell great produce on their doorsteps, and open their doors in fall for hayrides and pumpkin picking.
Another advantage of being a relatively new community is that many of Homer Glen’s subdivisions are linked by walking and biking trails. This network was unveiled in 2011 and continues to expand across the suburb more than a decade later.
