MI-BOX Moving Guide to Arlington Heights, Illinois​

Moving to Arlington Heights, Illinois​

Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Chicago without going too far from the Windy City? Welcome to Arlington Heights, IL!

Arlington Heights is located in Cook County, Illinois, and is a suburb of Chicago. Nestled between Palatine on the west and Mt. Prospect on the east, Arlington Heights is home to many city parks and borders the beautiful Busse Woods. Though it’s classified as a village, it’s the most populous place in the U.S. with that title—and it’s the 13th most populous place in Illinois. You get the big-city feel and numerous attractions, without the nonstop noise of Chicago.

The Weather in Arlington Heights​

Living in Arlington Heights, you’ll get used to very cold and snowy winters and very pleasant summers. During winter months, temperatures can get well below freezing. In the summer, temperatures can soar into the 100s, but those days of high heat are rare compared to warm and pleasant days.

If you’re unloading a moving pod in Arlington Heights as a first-time resident of the Midwest, get ready for some truly unruly winters—made more cumbersome by Arlington Heights’ proximity to Lake Michigan. While not as strong as in cities and towns along the coast, Arlington Heights still gets lake effect snow, which can compound inclement weather with an extra few inches every time a snowstorm blows into town. Get your shovel ready—or be prepared to pay the neighborhood youth to clear your driveway!
