City Guide
Kankakee, Illinois

While it’s pretty fun to say, Kankakee, an Illinois city and the county seat of Kankakee County, is also a pretty fun place to live. Sitting 60 miles away from Chicago, Kankakee is a suburban area with limestone cliffs, hundreds of acres of forest and over 27,000 happy residents. There’s a certain laid-back quality to life here that you can’t get anywhere else. Maybe it’s the golf courses, the fishing or the cost of living, which is about 11 percent lower than the U.S. average. Regardless of which characteristic makes living here so great, when it comes to cheap apartments, Kankakee takes the cake. We bet you’re wondering where you can sign up for the Kankakee way of life. Follow us and we will lead to some of the best and cheapest apartment listings in town.

Studio and efficiency apartments in Kankakee rent for as low as $450 per month while one-bedroom apartments range between $500 and $683. Those looking for a bit more space can find a two-bedroom apartment in Kankakee from $550 to $750 or a three-bedroom from $750 to $880.

Although “luxury” apartments in Kankakee aren’t run of the mill, there are plenty of quality living options that are true to the vibe of this city: cozy, down-to-earth, and realistic.

Another thing that happens to be pretty realistic in this Illinois town are the move-in deposits.

With rental prices this low and a community this lax, the hardest thing about moving to Kankakee will be learning to pronounce the city’s name.
