Boone County Community

Boone County’s strategic location, great connections, and excellent quality of life make this area stand out from all others as the place to work, play and live.

Boone County is a true gem of Northern Illinois. With its rich history, agricultural heritage and business-friendly environment, Boone County sets the example of nature and industry successfully coexisting.

Belvidere-Boone County is 75 miles from downtown Chicago on Routes 20, 76 and the Northern Illinois Toll Road. The interstate highways make it easy to also travel from Boone County Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, both between 70 and 90 miles away, in addition to our neighboring Rockford, to the west.

The County's close proximity to major metropolitan areas and major roads allows for quick access to three major airports less then an hour away, as well as a network of rail service.

The low cost of living, job opportunities, parks, and eclectic shops & restaurants provide a comfortable
environment to live, work and play.
