The City of Des Plaines is located approximately 17 miles northwest of downtown Chicago near O’Hare International Airport. It is a vibrant, diverse collection of residential, commercial, and industrial land uses, encompassing roughly 15 square miles of land area. Our neighboring communities include Park Ridge, Glenview, Mount Prospect, Rosemont, and Chicago.

No one is a stranger for long in Des Plaines. Relative newcomers work right alongside people who have lived here their entire lives to keep this community growing and progressing . . . and all opinions are valued. Our perseverance and convictions also keep us moving forward, through good times and bad. We are connected to this town, and to each other, and that connection is evident everywhere.

In fact our breadth of accessible, affordable and connected neighborhoods is one of our greatest assets. In Des Plaines, downtown high-rise condos take the stress out of living and commuting. When cities are no longer a good fit for growing families, our single-family neighborhoods are welcoming and friendly. And when it’s important that the cost of moving up doesn’t require you to live beyond your means, we invite you to enjoy our first class amenities and affordable way of life.

A FANTASTIC dinner opportunity prior to a show! We have just opened an exquisite wood fired pizza and rock  ‘n roll pizza parlor on the ground floor of the Des Plaines Theatre! Park once, have dinner, then go into the show! 


A Sicilian-born Chef Giacomo Zito, his wife Anna Maria, and their daughter Amanda have owned Giacomo’s since 1998.  The intimate dining room has an old-world, yet modern feel.  They also have out door dining when weather permits.
