Known as the City of Good Neighbors, the Arlington Heights area of Chicago is an excellent home base for those visiting the Windy City. An Arlington Heights hotel room offers easy access to both the Nathaniel Moore House and the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, two of the city’s most-visited historic landmarks.
If Arlington Height’s looks familiar, it’s likely because the city was the shooting location for A Nightmare on Elm Street, Blood and Wine, and Normal Life, among many other blockbuster films; Arlington Heights hotel guests can see the homes of some of the entertainment world’s elite, including Ted Nugent, Marlee Matlin, and American Idol winner Lee DeWyze.
Sports fans will feel right at home in the city; Arlington Park Race Track, home of the Arlington Million Breeders’ Cup event, is close by, as is one of the most famous locales in American sports, the legendary Wrigley Field.
No visit to the Greater Chicago area would be complete without a sampling of the area’s finest food and shopping. Stroll the Magnificent Mile and snag a slice of famous deep-dish Chicago pizza at Santullo’s Eatery, or cut loose at Carnivale. With scores of shops, restaurants, and accommodations, Arlington Heights is the perfect Chicago destination.
