Schaumburg is considered the premier business destination in Illinois, boasting more businesses in the state than any other community outside of Chicago.
While it has the distinction of being a center for economic and business development, Schaumburg hails as a suburban haven for residents looking to escape bustling city life. Residents enjoy an array of community activities, including finding fresh fruits at the farmers market, seeing shows at the Prairie Center for the Arts, discovering a new exhibit at the Trickster Gallery, or exploring the LEGOLAND® Discovery Center. The village is served by Metra’s Milwaukee District West Line and Pace Bus Route 602.
Schaumburg is also home to the largest shopping mall in Illinois and one of the largest shopping malls in the country. Woodfield Mall features hundreds of stores and restaurants from brand names to local favorites.
Throughout the year, there are a number of community-sponsored events such as the Prairie Arts Festival on Memorial Day weekend and Septemberfest on Labor Day weekend. Both festivals are held on the Municipal Center grounds.
Schaumburg’s excellent park district and village services are just some of the many reasons people choose to call Schaumburg home.
