Oak Park is becoming one of the most popular suburbs in the Chicagoland area. The downtown area has gone through a renovation that transformed it from a run-down industrial center into a buzzing village of restaurants, boutiques and community activities that caters to any interest group or demographic.
From live music venues like SPACE, Orbit Room and Constellation to festivals like Midwest Poetry Slam; there is something fun happening all year round in this small town atmosphere. Then there are other attractions such as the annual Downtown Home Tour (on bikes), Oaktoberfest, and the Farmers Market that all show off the best of Oak Park.
What makes Oak Park truly special is its people; which in turn is due to its small village size that allows everyone here to feel like they are part of a family. The village has always attracted artists but now we are seeing new residents with more diverse backgrounds move into Oak Park for its central location and great schools.
Everyone can enjoy the benefits of living in this ideal location whether they are a young professional, empty-nester, or raising a family. The best part is that Oak Park offers all these amenities at an affordable price! With so much to do and see here, you will never be bored and always find something new going on every week! With easy access to multiple train stops that put Chicago just 30 minutes away and O’Hare Airport under 20 minutes; anyone would be crazy not to move here.
