More Information

Elgin is located on the outskirts of the Chicago metro area approximately 40 miles from The Loop and its attractions. While this may seems like a long distance, Elgin was named one of the "Best Places to Live" in the US by Money magazine for a reason. There are plenty of attractions and activities near Elgin rental homes that won't cause you to miss the big city amenities of Chicago. And even if you do want to experience Chicago or commute there for work, the Milwaukee District West Metra Line runs through the city for easy access.

Downtown Elgin is the center of the city for entertainment and recreation. A variety of restaurants and shops are located here as well as the scenic riverfront. Residents of Elgin apartments and homes for rent can enjoy a stroll along the Fox River Trail or explore the history of the area at the Elgin Historical Museum. For the those who enjoy the performing arts, pay a visit to the Hemmens Cultural Center to catch a performance by the Elgin Symphony Orchestra. Finding an Elgin rental house near downtown will also place you close to the Gail Borden Public Library and the beautiful Festival Park.

Are you moving to an Elgin rental home to attend school at one of the many academic institutions in the area? Try to find an apartment or house for rent near campus to cut down on your commute. Elgin Community College is located southwest of downtown while Judson University and National Louis University are on the north side of the city.
