Arlington Heights is a suburb of Chicago that lies about 25 miles northwest of the city's downtown. Home to just over 75,000 residents Arlington Heights is the most populous community in the U.S. to be classified as a village. The people who call Arlington Heights home enjoy the small-town charm and amenities.
The downtown area is home to many wonderful shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. In addition, the Arlington Heights Park District is one of the oldest and considered to be one of the most elaborate park systems in the Chicago area.

I'm not only a huge advocate of Arlington Heights, I'm also a resident. My wife and I moved to Arlington Heights in the summer of 2017 and we absolutely love living here. The community checked nearly every item on our list. Pair that with an excellent downtown it was an easy decision for us to choose Arlington Heights as our new home.
