Natasa's Favorite Things

Check out some of Natasa's favorite things to see and do around her neighborhood of Pingree Grove, IL!


1. Sweet Summer Treats!


The Milk House ice cream shop is one of our favorites! The ice cream is made in-house with locally sourced ingredients. Located in our neighborhood of Pingree Grove, we often walk there or ride our bikes. (It helps to burn off those delicious calories!) Click HERE to visit The Milk House Website!

3. Goodness at Goebbert's


With two locations (Pingree Grove and South Barrington), you can have twice the fun! Goebbert's is the place to go for farm fresh fun! Of course the real magic happens in the fall when both locations have their annual fall festivals!


The Pingree Grove Location (opening later in July) will feature fresh summer vegetables at their farm stands and U-pick vegetable fields for a do it yourself harvest!

This location has year round events as well. We love that we can see the holiday light show from our house! Click HERE to see more information on year round events at the Goebbert's location in Pingree Grove.



The South Barrington Location (now open) features a large inventory of flowers, trees, shrubs, and vegetable plants! Click HERE to see the latest updates from Goebbert's located in South Barrington!




4. Community Events


I love participating in Pingree Grove community events and spaces that bring neighbors together.

Our community center is a great place for gathering with neighbors, working out or swimming. We also have community gardens available for our neighbors who just might need a little extra space to grow their summer vegetables!

The next big community event in our neighborhood

is the village wide garage sale! From June 16th -18th / 8AM - 6PM. Find things you are looking for and perhaps lots of treasures you didn't expect!




One of the largest holiday celebrations in our neighborhood is the Stars and Stripes Celebration for Independence Day. Celebrating our independence can span multiple days in Pingree Grove. There are friday night bands, beer gardens, a large parade and fireworks the next day!

The fireworks are some of the best in the area. Last year this event was held on July 10th. While the dates haven't been released yet for this year's event, you can check out the Village of Pingree Grove Page on Facebook for any updates on the celebrations for 2022!
