People find many reasons to move to a home for rent in Chicago: the arts, job opportunities, universities or nightlife. But others have found just as many good reasons to settle in one of the suburbs that surround this giant metropolis. These areas may not have iconic attractions like Wrigley Field or Grant Park, but residents usually find delight in the charm the town exudes. Those who decide to rent a home in Berwyn, Illinois, are able to enjoy a city that captures newcomers with its distinctly suburban and neighborly atmosphere, but also a thriving arts scene that provides an alternative to the high-cost venues in Chicago.
The area surrounding Berwyn homes is probably most famous for an esteemed sculpture, called Spindle, which appeared in the movies "Wayne's World" and "Wanted." The sculpture shows a vertical stack of eight colorful cars that appear to have been impaled by a giant spike. It stood in Cermak Plaza, where Berwyn residents could go to visit the department store or take a short drive to one of the world's largest laundromat -- another claim to fame -- complete with a big-screen TV, a bird sanctuary, and free pizza night on Wednesdays.
Those renting homes in Berwyn will find a number of quality venues for live music and a growing theater community. Additionally, residents frequently visit Janura park, which has three baseball diamonds and a hockey and basketball area.
