There are many reasons why people have been moving to Schaumburg, but it boils down to three simple words: Quality of life.
Schaumburg offers residents a place to hustle less and live more. To skip the bustle of big-city living, but still be just a short drive to Chicago. To live in a warm, welcoming community that has been Carefully Planned and Creatively Imagined to always feel like home.
Thinking about calling Schaumburg home? Here are five ways Schaumburg offers a greater quality of life!
1.) Award-winning schools
If you’re a parent you’ll want to make sure your new community has quality schools. Good news—Schaumburg’s schools are some of the best in the state! Schaumburg has both elementary and high schools that are Blue Ribbon award-winners, which is given to acknowledge schools that are academically superior to others in the state. But beyond our Blue Ribbon award winners, Schaumburg is committed to quality education at every level, across both public and private, as well as secular and parochial schools.
2.) Ample green space
Skyscrapers are breathtaking, but nothing beats being surrounded by trees and grass, with plenty of room to stretch your legs and breathe in the fresh air. Schaumburg has a verdant and vibrant selection of parks and outdoor spaces, including Bison’s Bluff Nature Playground, Volkening Lake, and The Sculpture Park. The Sculpture Park in particular is a must-see treat. An expansion of The Chicago Athenaeum Museum (America’s only independent architecture and design museum) Sculpture Park is more than a green space; it’s a celebration of creativity, with eye-catching statues throughout the park’s 20 acres of meadows and forest. See if you can spot them all!
3.) Fun for the whole family.
There’s so much for families to do in Schaumburg! Take your kids to a Schaumburg Boomers baseball game at Wintrust Field. Let their imaginations run wild at LEGOLAND Discovery Center. And go back in time to a land of brave knights and fair maidens at Medieval Times. But beyond the abundance of family friendly activities, what matters the most is the culture. Put simply, Schaumburg is a great community for children to grow up, and a place where a kid can still be a kid.
4.) Awesome for adults too!
Grownups can have a great time any time in Schaumburg too! Woodfield Mall, plus a host of world-class retailers and quirky local boutiques, make Schaumburg a shopping destination.
