10 Reasons to Move to Franklin Park This Summer

Since we’ve been in business for four generations, All My Sons Moving & Storage has plenty of experiencing moving families in and out of the windy city. Find out the top reasons to move to Franklin Park here:

Most Walkable City

Chicago and its surrounding areas is one of the most walkable areas in the country. There are over 70 neighborhoods that are filled with business, arts, culture, and amazing food. You can walk through some of Franklin Park’s most famous neighborhoods and along the Riverwalk.

Good Public Transportation

The public transportation in Franklin Park is extremely reliable and makes the city so easy to get around. Riders pay for their rides with a Ventra card, which now has a linkable mobile app.

Millennium Park

This is a public park located in the Loop area of Chicago that is one of the most famous parks in the country.  The park has breathtaking architecture, public art and an amazing landscape. “The Bean” is the iconic piece of art that draws visitors and locals to the park.

St. Patrick’s Day

Have you ever lived in a city that turns the whole river green with 45 pounds of vegetable dye for St. Patrick’s Day? People come from all over to see this famous Chicago tradition and watch the St. Patrick’s Day parade as it marches through Grant Park.

Navy Pier

Located on the shoreline of Lake Michigan, Navy Pier has more than fifty acres of shops, attractions, restaurants and more! You will definitely want to spend a whole day here with your family.

Deep-Dish Pizza

Chicago is world famous for their deep-dish pizza. It is baked in a round, steel pan that is more like a cake pan to give it that deep-dish crust.

Fireworks

Every Wednesday and Saturday from Memorial Day through Labor Day, the Aon Summer Fireworks show occurs over Lake Michigan. Take a cruise on Lake Michigan to view the fireworks or view them from the dock. Either way, it’s the best way to end your day at Navy Pier.

Wrigley Field

The home of the Cubs is one of the most iconic sports stadiums in the world. Fun fact: it’ the only ballpark where neighborhood residents can sit on their roof and watch the game.

Lake Michigan

The shore boasts 26 miles of public beaches and trails for hiking, biking, baseball, tennis and soccer. You can also take a boat ride on Lake Michigan in the summer and get skyline views that are unmatched.

O’Hare Airport

Franklin Park, IL is located right in the center of the United States and Chicago O’Hare is an international airport. You will be able to get just about anywhere with ease!
