Located approximately thirty miles north of the great city of Chicago is one of the most peaceful, beautiful neighborhoods of the Chicagoland area: Chicago Heights. Since Chicago Heights is mainly a residential area, you won't find any Chicago tourists. Instead, you will find yourself surrounded by parks, shopping, and dog lovers.
Like Chicago, Chicago Heights is incredibly diverse, home to people from all over the world. If you love meeting new people and learning about new cultures without the hustle and bustle of a huge city, this is the place for you. You will often find people speaking in Italian and Spanish all over the city. Furthermore, the people of this city are known for largely relying on public transportation instead of their cars, separating them from the norms of other residential cities.
If you're walking around Chicago Heights and don't see any dog parks, don't despair. Although the city does not have any dog parks, it has a staggering 25 community parks where you can go with your beloved leashed pup. Since the city is such a homey, loving place, you and your furry friend are bound to make a new friend or two. This is the magic of Chicago Heights!
My name is Jessica and I am a true animal lover at heart. I have had several work experiences involving pets, which include volunteering for Paws, working at Petsmart, and pet sitting for others. I am looking forward to getting to meet and know new fur residents of Chicago.
