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.
The CTA Blue Line has a stop in Rosemont.
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.
- Donald E. Stephens Museum of Hummels, 555 N. River Rd., . 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., . This semiprofessional hockey team plays at the Allstate Arena. The season runs October-April.
- Allstate Arena (Rosemont Horizon), 6920 N. Mannheim Rd., . A 19,000 seat arena that holds major music concerts as well as events such as circuses and rodeos.

- Rosemont Theatre, 5400 River Rd., . A 4,300 seat theater for stars including Jerry Seinfeld and Kelly Clarkson.
- Muvico 18, 9701 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., . This huge movie theater, over 100,000 square feet, is more than just a theater.
