Four reasons Schaumburg is a great place to call home!

We’ve all heard it before: Location, location, location! So what makes Schaumburg such a great place to call home? 

Schaumburg is a warm, welcoming community with award-winning schools, exceptional housing and career opportunities, and abundant shopping, dining, and culturally enriching experiences. Plus you’re never far from the big city or the rest of the world!

Want more details? Here are four things that make Schaumburg such a great location!

1.) 30 miles to Chicago.

Yep, Chi-Town is just 30 miles away from Schaumburg, which is anywhere from a half-hour to 40-minute drive depending on traffic. That’s less time than it takes to get to the grocery store in some places in Chicago! If you want a slower pace of life, but aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to the big city experience entirely, Schaumburg is the best of both worlds!

2.) 20 minutes to O’Hare International Airport.

Speaking of “best of both worlds,” Schaumburg is never far away from the rest of the world either. Schaumburg is about a 20-minute drive to O’Hare International Airport, which is less time than it takes to get to O’Hare from downtown Chicago! So whether it’s a family vacation you’ve planned for months, or a spur of the moment weekend getaway, it’s super easy to take a trip in Schaumburg.

3.) There’s so much to do!

Sure, Schaumburg’s close to Chicago, but we’re no “bedroom community”—we have so many great things to do! LEGOLAND Discovery Center and Medieval Times are both big hits with families, while Mom and Dad will love our options for “Date Night,” including delectable restaurants, trendy bars, and cozy cafes. And did we mention the stores? There’s a reason even Chicago residents make the short drive to Schaumburg for a shopping trip—our store selection is amazing!


4.) Lots of career opportunities.

Given Schaumburg is just 30-40 minutes from one of America’s biggest cities, and 20 minutes away from one of our nation’s busiest airports, it’s no surprise that lots of big companies make their headquarters here. You know their names: Zurich North America, US Robotics, Paylocity, Motorola Solutions, and more! But it’s not just the big companies that make Schaumburg a great career move, it’s the abundance of opportunity to chart your own path. We have a thriving business culture that supports your dreams without the red tape and real estate costs you’ll find elsewhere.
