Close to everything,

unlike anything.

Our vibrant, tree-lined community is thriving with retail shops, fine dining, outstanding theatre and art, excellent museums, and engaging events throughout the year.

Learn our colorful and rich history at the Elmhurst History Museum or explore modern art at the Elmhurst Art Museum with its McCormick House designed and built by Mies van der Rohe. Shop and play in the bustling downtown, Elmhurst City Centre, which offers everything from urban boutiques to live music, movies and exciting events. Revel to sounds of Mozart Beethoven and Mahler at the Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra. Take a leisurely walk, bike ride or jog down the pastoral 37-mile Illinois Prairie Path.
