Maywood has a population of just under 30,000 people and is a historic suburb of Chicago. The town features many old homes that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The city is serviced by the City of Chicago's public transportation and a quick ride on the train or bus will have you in the middle of all that Chicago has to offer.

For the sports fan, Maywood is a quick ride to all of Chicago's major sports stadiums that house the Chicago Bulls, Cubs, Blackhawks, White Sox, and Bears. The Magnificent Mile is just 10 miles away and features the very best in shopping and great restaurants. Read Less
