Moving to Joliet, IL-Crossroads of Mid-America

In this article, we will give residents moving to Joliet, IL some basic information about the area as well as some tips for getting moved, set-up, and established in this great city.  Considered part of the Chicago metro area, Joliet, IL is located 40 miles southwest of Chicago in the area of land that is outlined by the junctions of I-55, I-80, and  I-355. 

The population of Joliet is around 150,000, and it is Illinois' fastest growing city (and has been for some time).  It stands as the fourth largest city in the state, and has certainly been able to shine on its own.  An alluring city center thrives even despite its close proximity to Chicago.  The phrase "Crossroads of Mid-America" appears on the Joliet seal in reference to its very ideal location (which connects many chief interstates, highways, and waterways to each other).  It certainly is a hidden gem woven into the urban fabric of Chicagoland.

Moving to Joliet, IL-Basic Info

  • Climate-The Chicago metro area is known for getting a lot of snow in the winter and no mercy with frigid cold temperatures to follow.  The other seasons make up tenfold for this inconvenience.  Spring and Fall are mild with low humidity.  Summer is sunny and somewhat humid-usually coupled with very tolerable evening temperatures.
  • Transportation-The commuter rail line known as "The Metra" snakes throughout all directions of Chicagoland; the last stop for two of these rail lines is Joliet's Union Station.  The city also offers an extensive local bus service (Pace Bus) on weekdays and Saturdays.  Several miles of bicycle trails run throughout Joliet as well. 
  • Recreation-If you are moving to Joliet, IL having never been to a NASCAR race, you will certainly have your curiosity piqued by the Chicagoland Speedway.   Situated on over 930 acres of land in Joliet, the speedway annually hosts multiple NASCAR racing series and other exciting racing events.  Ticket prices are reasonable.
  • Shopping- Westfield Louis Joliet is the mall where your style can be redefined by an unparalleled experience of shopping and entertainment as well as eclectic cuisine.  Some of the stores you'll find there include American Eagle, Express, Macy's, Foot Locker, Spencer's Gifts, Radioshack, and Kay Jewelers. 
  • Food-Mouth-watering, syrupy pancakes will tantalize your taste buds at Joliet's Old Fashioned Pancake House.  Considered one of the most favored restaurants in Joliet by locals, it has been a Joliet staple since 1986.  The Hawaiian, German, and Swedish pancakes are highly recommended.
