      Markham, Illinois is a suburban town located within Cooks County with about 12,400 residents. The economy here is at float, the unemployment is down 6.40% and job growth for the next ten years is expected to be 36.38%. When it comes to politics 74% of the residents are Democrats and 24.36% are Republican the remaining 1.37% is independent.

      On average, we get a fair share of rain. Summers are a blast and the weather is always phenomenal. Summers are the perfect time for picnics, family barbecues and outdoor activities. Winters are cold with occasional snowfall no more than 30 inches.

      There is a handful of attractions and amenities that I always find useful while living here. One of my favorite destinations is Gensburg Markham Prairie; it is a beautiful landmark for nature's walks and tourism. In addition, I also love the fine dining cuisines, shopping centers, movie theatres, libraries and many other destinations near by. Overall, this is a great place for tourists and vacationers.
