  • Pace Bus-Local bus service throughout the area

Where do I find more information about local communities?

This section has links to the counties in our market area. They contain a wealth of information about local communities and more links. We also have links to the state of Illinois and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) which governs Illinois State Parks. Finally there is a link to check on whether a community charges a tax on the sale of real estate, if so who pays it and whether a community requires inspections. (The state of Illinois and local counties tax the sale of real estate but not every community has a tax.)

What is there to do in the area?

The suburbs and Chicago offer of wealth of things to do, places to eat, things to see and just about any kind of entertainment you want. So where do you start? One of the best sources I have found is Metromix which covers both Chicago and the suburbs.
