Villa Park, Illinois, was originally founded as a community for workers at the nearby Ovaltine plant, and it has become an essential Chicagoland suburb in the decades since its founding. Located 20 miles west of Chicago, Villa Park offers a posh suburban vibe while also being extremely convenient for traveling to Chicago. This makes Villa Park hotel packages a great vacation idea.
Visiting Villa Park
Villa Park is 14 miles southwest of O'Hare International Airport and 25 miles northwest of Midway Airport. While taxis are generally affordable in the Chicago area, rental cars are the best mode of transportation from the airports to Villa Park hotels. Once you get to Villa Park, you should take a shopping excursion to Oakbrook Terrace, which has an assortment of high-end and local merchants. Now that you've geared up, take a walk or ride a bike along the Illinois Prairie Path, which connects Villa Park with many of its suburban neighbors. If it's winter, you can even cross-country ski. Adventure lovers can go to the Safari Land amusement park or the Villa Park Skate Park.
Inevitably, you'll want to head into Chicago to see the Windy City's sights. Villa Park car rentals are a good idea for a trip into the city, as Interstates 88 and 290 will take you to the Chicago Loop, but you can also take the train in via the Metra Union Pacific/West Line. Once you get to the city, walk up to the historic Navy Pier, which is close to many hotels in Chicago. Also be sure to take a journey to the top of the Willis Tower, which is the second-tallest building in the United States and offers beautiful panoramic views of Chicago.
