Des Plaines Apartment Living

Neighborhood Vibe

Des Plaines is an excellent suburb for living in. The cozy neighborhoods, thriving local businesses, and access to great outdoor activities make it ideal. Still, it's also a diverse community with good schools, a fun downtown area, and residents who care.

Heart of the Neighborhood

The Des Plaines History Center is a great place to learn about this town. This museum collects, preserves, and interprets the history of Des Plaines. Then it shares the history of Des Plaines with residents through exhibits, educational programs, and research.

What We Love Most

Des Plains offers a lovely suburban feel while maintaining a good mix of hidden gems and places to eat, just like a city. Downtown Des Plaines is the Metropolitan Square, a new, mixed-use lifestyle center one block away from the Metra station. The Square hosts 135 condos and lofts built around car-friendly and pedestrian-friendly streets. The main street features local eateries and shops. A new 40,000-square-foot grocery store anchors the downtown area. If you prefer to get away from the hustle and bustle, the Cook County Forest Preserve features miles and miles of multi-use trails. There's also unrestricted open space for family dogs to run and play.

Best Way to Get Around

Des Plaines is about 20 miles from the city of Chicago. The most direct path to Chicago for apartments in Des Plaines is via I-90, but you can also take I-94 or I-294. Commuters also choose the Metra's Union Pacific-Northwest line directly to downtown Chicago's Ogilvie Transportation Center.
