Mettawa is a very small suburb located on the outskirts of Chicago, Illinois. While this community is only 35.5 miles from all the action in downtown Chicago, it is an area dedicated to restoration and conservation. Some residential development has occurred in the city, but with five forest preserves and nine nature preserves, this development has been very limited. However, you will still find numerous cheap hotels in Mettawa and its surrounding areas.
The O'Hare International Airport is located just 30 minutes from many of the hotels in Mettawa, but bus services to the town are very limited. This makes obtaining one of the rental cars in Mettawa or hiring a taxicab the most efficient means of transportation in this area. While Mettawa is home to numerous forest and nature preserves, Captain Daniel Wright Woods is one of the best parks to visit. The woods offer more than seven miles of trails that are perfect for walking, biking, hiking, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding. Another great site to see when visiting Mettawa is the Adlai Stevenson Historical Home, which was once the home of former Illinois governor, and Presidential nominee, Adlai Stevenson and his wife. The home and the nearby barn have been restored, and tours of the home are available. A portion of the 28-mile Des Plaines River Trail is also found in the western portions of Mettawa. Whether you choose to stay in one of great hotels near Mettawa or in one of the cheap hotels in Chicago, you are sure to enjoy your trip to Mettawa.
