The City of Berwyn
is located just 8 miles west of Chicago’s loop and offers easy accessibility to downtown Chicago and the surrounding suburbs via the Eisenhower (I-290) and the Stevenson (I-55) Expressways. Public transportation is also available via the CTA’s blue line “el” or the Metra BNSF line. The range of transportation options make commuting to work or planning a trip to attend one of Berwyn’s bustling business corridors or community events a snap.
Also known as Beautiful Berwyn and the City of Homes, Berwyn has an outstanding assortment of high quality homes in distinct architectural styles, including bungalows, Victorians, American four-squares, Tudors, and farm-house – and all for unbeatable prices. Born in a rich history, Berwyn has the most significant collection of Chicago-style bungalows in the nation today. Be sure to save the date for the Berwyn Historical Society’s annual Historic Berwyn Bungalow Tour in September.
Berwyn is home to the prestigious MacNeal Hospital, two thriving park districts, a municipal recreation department, a YMCA, the 16th Street Theater, FitzGerald’s Nightclub, a growing population of local artists, diverse food and beverage establishments and nightlife options, and plenty of family-friendly events and programming.
