Situated 16 miles west of Chicago, an Elmhurst vacation rental is an ideal base for exploring the Windy City. But Elmhurst has plenty of attractions of its own. Visit the contemporary works in the Elmhurst Art Museum, take in a movie or show at the historic York Theatre, or witness the city's collection of photos and theater memorabilia from the Theatre Historical Society of America.

    Nightmare on Elmhurst? Not likely

    Elmhurst's laid-back center is the beating heart of the community and sees weekly farmers' markets, craft beer festivals, and more than 50 different restaurants on offer. Outside of Chicago, it's also a popular place for shopping, with a wealth of cool independent stores and larger chains. During the summer months, the Elmore Express Trolley runs a free tour of the city every Friday and Saturday until midnight.

    Elmhurst - A thoroughly modern (art) city

    Elmhurst is a vibrant hub for culture vultures. As modern as the contemporary art it displays, the glass-and-steel structure of Elmhurst Art Museum is big draw to the city. Built by pioneering architect, Miles van der Rohe, it features a real mix of permanent and temporary exhibitions, including contemporary works by Wesley R. Baker and David Wallace Haskins. If you're more into old history than contemporary art, then head over to the Elmhurst History Museum on East Park Avenue which displays the fascinating journey through Elmhurst and DuPage County's history.

    Elmhurst and the Windy City is mighty pretty

    Elmhurst's proximity to Chicago means it experiences the same breezy conditions as the Windy City. The region has 4 very distinct seasons; think long, warm summers with temperatures peaking at 90 degrees, cool but pretty falls, and stiff winters with plenty of snow and ice. Elmhurst vacation rentals generally get booked up quickly during the warm summer months, so for the best choice visit in late fall or early winter, but don't forget to pack plenty of layers. Spring is a particularly pleasant time to visit, but it does get wet, so waterproofs are essential.

    Don't go chasing waterfalls...

    Located 16 miles west of downtown Chicago, Elmhurst is well placed for Chicago O'Hare Airport. Elmhurst is largely made up of urban and residential areas, meaning few places to escape the rat race. For the best choice of getting back to nature, head to the Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve, a 20-minute drive south of Elmhurst. Here you'll find a number of attractive hiking trails through prairies and across the Des Plaines River, and past the eponymous waterfall. It's home to rare birdlife, including pileated woodpeckers, barred owls and broad-winged hawks, all of which are regularly spotted.
