Smartbox Portable Storage of Northern Chicago

Chicago is a large city in Illinois, housing more than 2.7 million people. It is the most populous city in the state of Illinois, as well as throughout the Midwestern United States. If you're planning to move to Chicago, the first step is narrowing down the area in which you plan to live. Northwest Chicago includes six main communities, which each include several neighborhoods. Although moving is often a stressful experience, you can turn to the professionals at Smartbox Portable Storage & Moving to take away the pressure.

Welcome to Northwest Chicago

Northwest Chicago offers easy access to downtown, along with culturally diverse and unique neighborhoods to call home. The main community areas include Hermosa, Portage Park, Belmont Cragin, Irving Park, Montclare, and Dunning. Within Portage Park, neighborhood options include Six Corners, Belmont Central, and Wladyslawowo. Iriving Park houses The Villa, Avondale Gardens, West Walker, Independence Park, Old Irving Park, Kilbourn Park, and Little Cassubia.

The area of Dunning includes Schorsch Village, Belmont Terrace, Irving Woods, and Belmont Heights, while the only neighborhood within Montclare has the same name. Hermosa has Kelvyn Park and Belmont Gardens, and Belmont Cragin includes Hanson Park and Belmont Central. Each neighborhood has its own unique vibe. If you're looking for a historic home, Irving Park is a great place to look since it boasts old Victorian homes, many of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Montclare often appeals to young professionals moving to the area because of its nightlife and vibrant social scene. Kelvyn Park is more heavily residential, and locals love the family-friendly, diverse atmosphere. No matter which neighborhood you choose to live in, Smartbox Moving & Storage can make it easier to get there.

Special Points of Interest

Northwest Chicago houses several of its own attractions, and it also provides easy access to other areas of the big city. Some of the world-renowned buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright sit about 10 miles west of downtown in various locations near Oak Park. These include the Unity Temple, three Queen Anne-style bootleg houses, and the Nathan G. Moore House, which showcases the Tudor Revival style inspired by Medieval times.

The Baha'i House of Worship is also a fascinating place to visit, located in nearby Wilmette. It is one of seven Baha'i houses of worship in the world and the oldest of the seven. Individuals of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome to visit the temple to meditate, explore the gardens, or pray. Another peaceful location is the Chicago Botanic Garden, which includes four natural habitats, 24 gardens, and nine islands spread across 384 acres.

For an exciting day out with the family, spend some time at LEGOLAND Discovery Center. Visitors can learn secrets to improve their LEGO building skills, watch 4-D films, view iconic landmarks from the city built completely out of the toy bricks, and explore the Pirate Adventure Island exhibit. Within the city, some of the most popular attractions include Millennium Park, where you can see the famous bean sculpture, Navy Pier, a destination with shops, eateries, and rides, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
