Destination guide

Charming Barrington offers easy access to Chicago

You might know Barrington as the site of the infamous Battle of Barrington, which pitted federal officers against the Prohibition-era gangster Baby Face Nelson back in 1934. But this little town on the far-flung northern outskirts of Chicago is more than just a curious historical stop off. It's also a charming, lived-in place, where Illinois locals buzz between the American diners and Barrington vacation rentals hide between handsome Victorian homes in the heritage-rich downtown district. Access to the Windy City is also easy, opening up world-class art galleries, science museums, and sights.

Things to do

Historic Barrington awaits

No trip to Barrington could possibly be complete without at least a short walk through the heritage district of the village of Barrington. Home to handsome Gothic mansions and Queen Anne-style architecture, it's considered the largest historic suburb in all of Chicago. And talking of Chicago, the delights of the sprawling Windy City are never too far way. You can expect to be touring the famous Art Institute, Millennium Park, the shark tanks of the Shedd Aquarium, and the wonders of The Loop in just under a 45-minute drive from your door.


Enjoy street walks and pretty parks in Barrington

You're sure not to forget Barrington's unique street scene. Search for Barrington vacation rentals close to the heart of the town on East Main if you want to head straight out on guided walking tours of the old Victorian mansions, playhouses, and pretty Queen Anne-style homes that dot the blocks there. Alternatively, you could bed down on the eastern edge of the suburb, where the 1,500 acres of the Deer Grove East reserve host running tracks, cross-country skiing trails, and picnic spots.


Barrington is beautiful in the warmer months

Barrington offers a quiet and peaceful base for exploring the Windy City at any time of the year. However, if you've come here for the added attractions of the historic Barrington Village and the winding trails of Deer Grove East, then it's certainly worth planning your trip for the summertime. Running from May to August, that's when you're likely to get the best weather, with sunny days, dry skies, and fine conditions for strolling the handsome streets.

Natural features

Discover the suburban Midwest in Barrington

Barrington vacation rentals are the perfect choice for travelers searching for somewhere serene to bed down after long days touring the Windy City. But that doesn't mean they are far from the pretty backcountry of the Midwest, either.

To the north of town, the Cuba Marsh Forest Preserve has another habitat, with boardwalk trails, wetland swamps, submerged woods, and birding lookouts.
