Is this going to be the most objective blog article? I hope so. You want to know the best thing about Tinley Park? It’s location. I would venture to say that Tinley Park is at the junction of the heart of the Southwest Chicago suburbs.
You’ve got LaGrange Road (Route 45), four interstate highways (I-80, I-294, I-57, and I-355) all within a 12 mile radius of Tinley Park, and public transit perfect for commuting on a budget (Metra Rock Island).
You have access to go anywhere really quickly while still enjoying just enough distance to live a peaceful, quiet suburban life in a nice two story home or other.
This is not to say that there’s not much to do in Tinley Park that you have to go elsewhere for events and fun activities. The important point I want to make is that you have the option to get away for a bit to explore Chicagoland or a neighboring state easily. Think of Tinley as a springboard that can catapult you like no other Southwest Chicago suburb.
