A simple stay just outside Chicago’s Executive Airport, the Ramada Plaza on Milwaukee Avenue is a low-cost way to enjoy the northwest side of town. Ideal for those visiting family in the Prospect Heights area without breaking the bank, the quaint low-rise hotel offers an on-site restaurant and sports bar, bowling alley, plus floor-to-ceiling windows that make waking up easy to do. Enjoy simple rooms with bright red themes along with an open-air plaza perfect for feeling what the windy city is all about. In addition to on-site perks, the hotel also offers a 2-mile area shuttle so long as you reserve a seat ahead of time, not to mention less than 4-miles distance to the Prospect Heights metro station.
Located along the Des Plaines River, the stay is ideal for those looking to get in touch with nature without having to walk too far. Head east on Palatine Road to reach the Des Plaines River Trail, a miles-long path offering scenic views through a variety of attractions, from the nature refuge in Allison Woods to the changing leaves of Potawatomi Forest, both of which are especially popular in the months of Autumn. If the on-site eats from Tap House Grill don’t suit your fancy, head north toward Bob Chinn’s Crab House, a local staple with huge seating areas and renowned seafood. For something more casual, head to Superdawg Drive-In instead, located next-door to Bob Chinn’s and made famous for its fast-food hotdogs and burgers.
