City GuideGlenwood
The popular rap song, "Glenwood," by Big Sean and featuring Kanye West, was written about the town of Glenwood, Illinois.

Glenwood is the perfect example of a small town that has done everything it can to avoid losing its identity to the nearest major city. This is not always easy when your population is just a hair under 9,000. The town maintains its identity largely by offering its citizens everything they need and most of what they want. From beautiful parks, pools and exciting places to spend their evenings, there is no reason to go anywhere else.

Moving to Glenwood

Apartment rentals in Glenwood are not hard to find but the process can be a little weird. Everywhere you go, you will pay first and last months' rent along with a security deposit -- that's a given. Where it gets weird is in the application process. Some places have a process that makes you feel like you have applied to be the director of the CIA. Other places hand you a key when you hand them the money. It can be all over the place and you should expect everything from a hard credit check to nothing more than a glance at your driver's license.

If you are looking for a pet-friendly apartment on your apartment search, remember to ask in person. Some places say no, some say yes, and some make exceptions. In high-rise apartments, you can expect to pay a pet deposit and monthly fee. You can expect deposits to be required on your utilities as well. These run about average for the nation. If you are moving from one place to another within the service area for the electric company then you can usually just have your service transferred and skip the deposit. For the water company you should take your rental agreement or lease with you when you apply to have service started; sometimes they want to see it and sometimes they don't so save yourself a trip and take it with you.

Neighborhoods

When you are dealing with towns this small, it's hard to find definitive neighborhoods like you see on television. In Glenwood, you have the main town and the rest of the town. The city's real estate agents have named them the Village and Chicago Heights.

Chicago Heights: You will find plenty of high-rise apartments here along with a decent number of vacancies. You are close to several great places to eat and lively night spots here; both Club 390 and Bergstein's New York Delicatessen are located in this area.

Village: The big claim to fame for this part of town is that the Station bar is located in this area. You will find plenty of rental choices in this area. Single-family homes and even smaller apartment rentals will be in this area. Vacancies are pretty common, but the really great places tend to go quickly, so keep that in mind when you find something that you like!

Living in Glenwood

If you are looking for great things to do in Glenwood, step outside the front door! There is a great New York-style deli in the Chicago Heights area called Bergstein's, where you can get a melt-in-your-mouth Reuben sandwich or an impressive turkey on rye. The local Warsaw Inn features an outstanding European buffet and specials each night. If you want the best ribs you have ever tasted, you want to visit the Glenwood Oaks Rib and Chop Shop.

For a great bar, go to the Station on Glenwood. They get great reviews online and there is always something going on there. If you are looking for more noise and action, Club 390 is the place to be.

Don't feel bad when you finally give in and pay Chicago a visit. When you are this close to Wrigley Field, you have to go! There is also the world famous Field Museum, art galleries and tons of world-class shopping. You will always come home at the end of the trip!
