Little-Known Ways to Have a Blast in Rosemont

Rosemont is one of the more charming but lesser known cities in Illinois. As a quaint village that is nestled just northwest of the big city of Chicago, it may be tempting for visitors to stay in one of the great hotels here while visiting the Windy City. Visitors would make a mistake if they simply rushed in and out of this area, though, because Rosemont has a definite charm and the promise of many adventures all on its own.

Theatrical Treats

The Rosemont Theatre is located in the heart of the village on River Road, the same road as the Chicago Marriott Suites O’Hare and other convenient hotels. It’s in the middle of the action and hosts everything from exciting plays straight from Broadway to shows by some of the most beloved singers and bands in the world.

You may want to check this venue’s schedule to fit in some of the glitz and glamour of the theatre while on your Rosemont vacation. The Allstate Arena and MB Financial Park are two other locations that host big concerts in the small village of Rosemont. The Muvico Rosemont 18 is right on the MB Financial Park, so you can watch the latest movie in one of its 18 recently remodelled big screen theatres. The park also hosts season-appropriate festivals throughout the year.
