Des Plaines Apartment Living

Neighborhood Vibe

Des Plaines is a great suburb for living in. Mainly it’s the cozy neighborhoods, thriving local businesses and access to great outdoor activities that makes it ideal, but 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 that 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 Metropolitain Square, a new, mixed-use lifestyle center which is one block away from the Metra station. The Square hosts 135 condos and lofts built around streets that are car-friendly and pedestrian-friendly. 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 lots of open space for family dogs to run and play, unrestricted.

Best Way to Get Around

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