Once home to the Potawatomi, Ottawa, and Chippewa tribes, Des Plaines encompasses a vast 15 square miles of gently rolling valleys, rivers and woodlands. The community is located only 17 miles from downtown Chicago and 24 miles west of Lake Michigan.

Trains as well as bus and subway services are available for convenient and comfortable public transportation. Downtown redevelopment and industrial growth provide a stable economy and bright prospects for the future. The Metropolitan Square development serves as such a resource.

Warm summers bring a variety of sports programs and annual events such as the Taste of Des Plaines to the populace. Golf courses, horseback riding trails, aquatic centers, bike paths and more provide plenty of opportunities for outdoor fun. The city's elementary and secondary schools are nationally acclaimed. An excellent junior college and a state-of-the art public library opened in 2000 make it possible for all residents of Des Plaines to acquire an exceptional education. Real estate offerings in Des Plaines include single-family homes as well as condominiums and townhouses.
