Situated in the heart of Chicago, the apartments for rent in Marquette Park are perfect for growing families or bachelors and bachelorettes who are looking to begin a new chapter in their lives. Chicago affords its residents a vast cultural repertoire with its multiplicity of museums and institutions of higher learning, and while the Windy City is thrumming with activity, it will not feel congested - getting away from the urban setting will be easy with the 19 miles of lakeside bike paths and 552 parks that you will have access to.
Running along the eastern edge of your new abode is Interstate 94, also known as the Dan Ryan Expressway. This main road can transport you quickly to the northern or southern tip of the city.

The city also has a bus transit system, which travels throughout the city and stops frequently right in your neighborhood.
