Once only a place for conventioneers, the city of Rosemont has evolved into a major entertainment and shopping hub for locals, tourists and conventioneers. Located next to O'Hare International Airport, and along major expressways, it's become a popular place in the Chicago area to eat, play and shop.
Besides the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center and the nearby Allstate Arena, which hosts A-list concerts and shows, Rosemont has a buzzing new entertainment complex called MB Financial Park. The large outdoor venue is surrounded by several restaurants, a huge movie theater and bowling alley. There's a football field-sized grass area in the center, which is where they host many free outdoor events, ranging from ice skating to concerts.
It's a popular place to party, especially for groups, because of the many large, loud restaurants. Teens and twenty somethings pack Sugar Factory for its over-the-top desserts and drinks, and the drinking crowd will raise a pint at the German bar, Hofbrauhaus.
Fashionistas will love the new Fashion Outlets of Chicago with high-end design shopping at spots like Burberry, Nieman Marcus, Nike and Prada and its equally-impressive amenities including airline baggage check-in and boarding pass issuance for those traveling through O’Hare International Airport. A free shuttle is offered to and from O'Hare.
