Who wouldn't want to move to a place known as "The Friendly Village?" Worth should also be called "The Pet-Friendly Village" since 63% of rental properties here allow pets. In Worth, you'll find home rentals that range from one-bedroom apartments to three-bedroom houses. If you want to rent here, start looking ASAP as there can only be so many vacancies at one time in a village just over two square miles! Don't forget proof of income, references and security deposit. Being politely persistent in looking for places here can go a long way to securing a rental unit. Apply to ads quickly, and if you happen to see a "For Rent" sign, inquire immediately as it's definitely first come, first served around here!
Of course in a village so dang small (but so dang cute, too!), there aren't really neighborhoods, and the apartment homes as well as houses tend to be spread out quite a bit. Still, several areas in Worth are sectioned off by different streets and the types of rental housing, as well as the amenities, can vary widely.
West 111th Street and Ridgeland Avenue: There are three-bedroom rental homes in this major area of Worth. It's also the perfect place to look for one- to three-bedroom apartments on the surrounding streets such as 113th. You'll see some three-story apartment buildings here too, and some have two-bedroom apartments for rent. On West 111th Street, there are 2 story buildings with 1 bedroom apartments and some of these units have air conditioning. Parking is in front of the units, and many complexes here also have bus stops near the property. Grocery stores, delis, pharmacies and restaurants are plentiful in this section of town.
For an interesting restaurant experience near West 111th and Ridgeland, try Krapil's the Great Steak. Yes, the name alone is entertaining and so is the fact that two worlds of eating exist here -- a classic steakhouse inside and a casual patio dining atmosphere outside. Sandwiches are served only on the patio, not inside, but there is steak, seafood and salads for both sections.
Ridgeland Avenue and West 95th Street: The exit to I-294 and major expressways is close to where you'll find some larger rental buildings with premier apartments in Worth. These are close to the freeway and typically offer one- to three-bedroom rental units.
Harlem Avenue at 115th Street: Some pricier rental apt options in Worth, IL, are included in this area, but there are also some more affordable rental options close by. This is the Waters Edge community with a public golf course and recreation area. Grocery and food supply businesses can be found between 90th and 93rd. Near 111th Street and Harlem Avenue is the Village Hall -- of course it _can't _be a City Hall! -- which is on the bus route in Worth.
Public transportation is super-popular for commuters in this village. The number of workers who take it in Worth is 77.6% higher than the state average and an amazing 172.8% higher than the national median. That being said though, when it comes to non-work hours, cars rule here and households with at least one vehicle outnumber both state and national averages. Just a five minute drive away from Worth, the Chicago Ridge Mall is a popular place for shopping at name brand stores or catching a movie at the six screen theater. In warm weather, get out and exercise on the sports fields or trails at Waters Edge Recreational area. Then, get back to relaxing in your worthwhile rental home in Worth!
