North American Van Lines: The Best of Oak Park Moving Companies

Located 10 miles straight west of Chicago, Oak Park is a family-friendly, tree-lined city that has served as the stomping grounds for some of America’s greatest artists. Oak Park was home to American author Ernest Hemingway, with one of its most famous attractions being Hemingway’s childhood house. There is also the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright-designed residential properties in the world located in Oak Park.

Geographically, the town lies on the shore of ancient Lake Chicago, which covered most of the city of Chicago during the last Ice Age. Today the city has easy access to downtown Chicago via public transportation on the Chicago ‘L’ blue and green lines, CTA buses and Metra commuter rail. For the 30th year in a row, Oak Park earned a Tree City USA  award from the Arbor Day Foundation, with more than 18,000 parkway trees.

As of the 2013 U.S. Census, Oak Park has a population of about 52,000. Like Chicago, Oak Park experiences long, cold winters and hot summers.
