I am also glad Tinley Park got props. It works hard to build a strong community.

Not to take anything from Tinley Park for this great honor but, again, it's a glossy magazine survey, from the same folks that ranked East Garfield Park and Cicero the next "up and coming" areas a few years ago.
True. I was just referring to chet's nod to Arlington Heights/Schaumburg... seems like you'd be driving for that long if you had to go up there from Tinley.

I honestly think that Schaumburg and Arlington Heights are excellent places to live as well. Maybe this should have been a three way tie

Just out of curiosity, why has TP come a long way in 10 years....I grew up there and other than more subdivisions, and a renovated downtown, I dont really think its changed all that much...

How are the restaurants in Tinley Park? What about night life? Is the Metra station pretty easy to get to and park at and such? We are in our mid 30's (no kids) looking to move out of the city..Tinley Park looks affordable and seems like it has newer construction...Oh and can we get off the race related subject? Jeez

Tinley Park is actually pretty sprawling. Most of it is in Cook County, but some of it extends to Will County. There is plenty of shopping and Orland Park Mall is close by. Of course, the restaurants are not in the same caliber as the city insofar as ethnicity or haute cuisine, but there are some very good and diverse choices. Lou Malnati's just opened a carry out. Well known chains include: nearby on LaGrange (Orland) is a Rock Bottom Brewery, Granite City Brewery, Champps and PF Changs. There is a winery called Coopershawk. Tin Fish for seafood. Old Tinley has a quaint downtown area. There are two metra stops. The lot on 80th avenue has quite a number of spaces to park. There is a Sam's Club on Harlem. There are pubs and clubs to crawl if that is to your liking, but nothing like the city. Bike and hiking trails can be found on the Tinley Creek trail. There is a waterpark and great park system. Good sized library.
Hospitals are about a twenty minute ride away.
Old Tinley as been going thru a renaissance, people buying older homes and renovating them to look like vintage houses. There are old and new homes alike.
Hope that helps.

What about a steakhouse I remember seeing in the area of a Famous Dave's I ate at the other day?

Oh, never mind, that may be Orland Park?

Your probably thinking of Traverso's on Harlem/151st ish, or maybe Outback?

There was a good steakhouse in Tinley called Bogart's, however, Im not sure if its still there

Jill said the name may have changed, but okay. The point is still there is plenty of (good) eating in the Tinley Park/Orland Park area. Even Oak Forest has a few good places.
