City Guide
Moving to Town

Looking for rental apartments in Canton, IL? You'll find rental houses, duplexes for rent, and townhouses for rent here - many of which are along the Spoon and Illinois River, immortalized by poet Edgar Lee Masters in the Spoon River Anthology. Be sure to give yourself at least a month to find an abode in this community as housing is often in high demand (especially the prime riverside real-estate). Check online listings and the local paper and peruse the streets of town on foot or by car to find the best spot for you. Be sure to come equipped with the kind of information most landlords require today: your ID, credit report, and bank statements or W2s.


Main Street: The perfect spot for those who enjoy being able to spend time enjoying the great outdoors as well as a number of downtown Canton attractions such the gorgeous Lakeland Park, Canton Memorial Stadium, and the weekly farmer's market. Here you can find a nice mix of both rental apartments and single family homes, occupied by renters and owners.

Walnut Street: This is the perfect spot for nature lovers who will enjoy exploring bike paths and walking trails along the Van Winkle Lake. There are many small family homes built around the middle of the 20th century available here. Apartment choices are more limited though some options are available - take your time looking.

11th Street: Located adjacent to the stunning Canton Lake, this peaceful neighborhood offers everything from single family homes to mid-sized and smaller apartments for rent. Peaceful tree lined streets and the nearby bike paths of Big Creek make this neighborhood a solid draw.

Both Lakeland Park and Big Creek Park have recreation areas offering camping, picnic tables, and family events held several times a year. In short, get ready to get in touch with your inner Nature Child. Finally, if you enjoy experiencing vibrant local festivals and events throughout the year, then head on out to the largest city in Fulton County, Illinois for days of family fun each month.
