Glenview, Illinois: Chicago Suburb with Aviation History
A northern suburb of Chicago, the quiet town of Glenview is just a 40-minute drive or 30- to 50-minute train ride from the city. The community played a key role in the nation’s defenses during World War II; Naval Air Station Glenview was the largest primary air training facility for the US Navy. After the war, it continued to serve as a training center for Naval Air and Marine Air reserves until 1995.
Today, the site of the old Naval Air station has been transformed into The Glen, a trendy area with restaurants, shops, and modern apartments. The neighborhood boasts a 10-theater cinema, an 18-hole golf course, and lots of public parks. Kid-friendly attractions nearby include the interactive Kohl Children’s Museum.
