Rosemont is a city in Cook County in the state of Illinois, just outside of Chicago. It does enormous business as the primary hotel supplier for O'Hare International Airport, but has a couple of the region's best-known concert venues as well.

Contents

Get in

The CTA Blue Line has a stop in Rosemont.

Get around

PACE buses serve the area, and hotels can be expected to run shuttles to the airport. For anything else, though, you'll likely want to have a car.

See

  • Donald E. Stephens Museum of Hummels, 555 N. River Rd., [1]. Self-proclaimed as having the world's largest public display of M.I. Hummel figurines in the world. You know, those little cherub-faced ceramic figures.
  • Chicago Wolves, 6920 N. Mannheim Rd., [2]. This semiprofessional hockey team plays at the Allstate Arena. The season runs October-April.

Do

  • Allstate Arena (Rosemont Horizon), 6920 N. Mannheim Rd., [3]. A 19,000 seat arena that holds major music concerts as well as events such as circuses and rodeos.
  • Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, 5555 N. River Rd., [4]. This enormous complex hosts a variety of conferences and events, including Chicago Comic Con, Acen, and even local high school proms.
  • Rosemont Theatre, 5400 River Rd., [5]. A 4,300 seat theater for stars including Jerry Seinfeld and Kelly Clarkson.
  • Muvico 18, 9701 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., [6]. This huge movie theater, over 100,000 square feet, is more than just a theater. For those 21 and up, the VIP Theatre has free popcorn, bigger seats, and cocktails. There's a full-service restaurant on site (you can eat while watching a movie), a playroom, and child care for kids age 3-10.
