When I got transferred to Illinois for labor I was originally unquestionably bummed, and i figured I was getting cold, snow and ice year around with nothing to do! When I found out my location was Orland Park I was seriously unhappy.
It is 30 hours outside Chicago and looks like a fairly small city.
When I looked up things I like to do I wasn’t content by my results; There was Centennial Park, The Aquatic Center and the Orland Park Square Mall. That’s it? I figured I would be driving to Chicago all the time. I also figured I would be bundled up in my beach apartment chilly cold. When my partner and I went apartment hunting the gas furnace was a priority to me. I wanted a high quality gas furnace that could sit the chilly weather. We found a place that had a boiler system that was hooked up to piping. The whole apartment had hydronic radiant flooring. It made the floors toasty hot and silent all winter. I figured that would be relaxing enough and I still wouldn’t like my location, but now that I have lived a full year in Orland Park I can only say relaxing things, then first, it isn’t always chilly cold. I do get months of nice weather where the gas furnace turns off and I really consider AC, then second, there are lots of things I like to do in my location, especially for families. The activities listed above are really quite fun and offer lots to do. I hardly ever drive to Chicago because Orland Park seems to have everything.
