In Eastern Illinois, people flock toward Chicago in search of a home for rent that will fit into their lifestyles. Chasing a job in the city, many residents hope to live in a place that puts high culture and entertainment right at their fingertips. But to limit one's search to the Windy City itself would be to ignore some other areas on the map that are just as intent on providing residents with the glamours of the city and plenty of recreation for leisure hours. Those who rent in Joliet, Illinois, live in a community that is as vibrant and entertaining as just about any city in the area.
Some of the landmarks that surround Joliet rentals give the city a unique atmosphere and edgy feel. The downtown Rialto Square Theater on Chicago Street was once a hangout of the famed American mobster Al Capone. Nearby, those in Joliet homes can pay a visit to the Empress or Harrah's casinos -- the two riverboat casinos located in the Illinois city. As one might expect, these elegant, high-traffic areas are also dotted with a mixture of restaurants and crafty shops, including the Westfield Louis Joliet mall.
In their down time, many people who rent in Joliet head to one of the city's four golf courses -- Inwood, Woodruff, Wedgewood, and the Joliet Country Club -- or take a ride on the miles of bike trails that wind through Joliet. Finally, sports fans in Joliet will be sure to catch minor league baseball's Joliet Slammers, or wait for a NASCAR event to hit the Chicagoland Speedway.
