Countryside, Illinois is a small suburb about 17 miles southwest of Chicago. While the town only has a population of about 6,000, it boasts a wide range of dining and entertainment options that you can enjoy while getting away from the big city.
When you schedule your trip to Countryside, get a flight that lands at Midway International Airport, which is about 10 miles away from the suburb. The easiest way to reach Countryside from Midway is to take a cab, but check with your hotel first, as some cheap hotels in Countryside offer shuttle services from the airport. Settle into your room, and then look into Countryside car rentals to get you around on the rest of your trip. If you love spending time in nature, you're in luck as cheap Countryside hotels will put you near impressive parks, forests, and golf courses. Arie Crown Forest has an unpaved trail system that covers about 3.4 miles, and it's a wonderful place to see wildflowers and other plants that thrive in the protected area. Theodore Stone Forest is another place to relax and enjoy the great outdoors, especially its prairie and woodland environments that attract diverse wildlife. If you'd rather play a game of golf than wander through a prairie, then hotels near Countryside will make it easy for you to visit Flagg Creek Golf Course, a public, nine-hole course that also has a restaurant where you can enjoy refreshments after your game.
Most of the restaurants and bars in Countryside are located on Joliet Road, which is part of historic Route 66. Since many Countryside hotels are also in this area, it's a convenient place to stop for a quick bite to eat. Some of the most popular restaurants on Joliet Road include steakhouses, pizzerias, and Irish pubs.
