What You Might Not Love
We're right by O'Hare - convenient if you need to escape quickly but yeah. Corporate park. (Remember, though, only 2 days a week). But there's this freakishly odd middle-of-nowhere square with artificial turf, a bandstand, a few pretty decent bars, and an indoor skydive facility.
The fact that there's no second bullet point here.
