Welcome to Chicago! I'm pretty much a bike guy and not a car guy, so I googled up some info.

Try this page:

Downers Grove, Carpentersville, Palatine and Winfield are all suburbs of Chicago. Most are accessible via commuter rail (

And this show in Burlington, which is about 1.5 hours (65 Mi from the downtown area) away, but you will need to have access to a car to get there.

Have a great visit
