What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Arlington Heights

It's quiet because it's a mile off the highway, but close enough to go shopping. The complex itself is a great place to walk for exercise because of the tall, shady trees and the slightly rolling roadways.

It is close to downtown but still very safe for families and children this is important to me . We also have low crime

Feel safe close to shopping and restaurants and expressways libraryvery walkable well lit well kept homes

I like how close it is to downtown and shops/restaurants. One of my favorite local coffee shops is walking distance. It's also near the college with open spaces and parks to safely walk in.

The people are quite welcoming. There's a considerable diversity, with people coming from different countries and culturesThe schools are among the best

The thing I like most about my neighborhood is that it's quiet and I feel safe. Do you get to know the people you get to know their schedule like when they're exercising what time of day who they are I love that everybody waves it's just a good neighborhood there's nothing really unique about it. It's just home.

All About

Living in Arlington Heights, IL

Once you settle into your new apartment in Arlington and begin to venture out into the streets, you'll see first-hand what makes residents of Arlington proud of their city. For some, it's the strong small town feel. For others, it's the big city amenities. For many, it's a combination of the two.

Lucky you, you'll have the best of both worlds if you rent an apartment in Arlington Heights. With a population of close to 73,000 people, Arlington isn't a one-stop light sort of town, but it does have its hometown traditions and community spirit. Residents live in the same homes for decades, favor local retail businesses and play active roles in the community.

In Arlington, you can choose from many apartments within walking distance to unique neighborhoods with shopping, culinary treats, historic buildings and more. Many Arlington streets are lined with trees, but if you're really into nature, look for apartments near one of the city's many parks. Or, search for apartments near Lake Arlington where you can rent boats, go kayaking, take sailing lessons, hike along scenic trails and much more. Here, you won't feel like you live in a city, even though you do.

Residing in an Arlington apartment means living just 25 miles northwest of Chicago Ð one of the largest cities in the country. However, this suburb of the windy city has an urban appeal of its own. The growth of Arlington Heights is apparent in the swelling downtown skyline and in the increased number of retail shops and office parks around the city.

Arlington city living is great for recreation and entertainment, but what about making a living there to pay for your new apartment? No worries. Arlington has that covered too. There are more than 3,800 businesses, including major corporations, manufacturers, retailers and small businesses in Arlington. Think about where you'll work in Arlington if you want your apartment to be within walking distance to your job. The downtown area hosts many retail merchants, but the main office and industrial areas are on the far north and far south ends of town.

Another must-do after moving into your new apartment is to take in some of the local history of Arlington. Take a trip 150 years back in time to the beginning of the city's history at the Arlington Heights Historical Museum. From May until September or October, you can enjoy the spectator sport of thoroughbred racing at the historic track at Arlington Park.

Whether you're moving to Arlington Heights for the city excitement, the small town charm or both, you can find the best apartments on ApartmentGuide.com.
