Des Plaines Real Estate

Des Plaines (676 x 507) (338 x 254)Des Plaines is a city in Cook County. It has adopted the official nickname of “City of Destiny”. It is a suburb of Chicago and is next to O’Hare International Airport. The Des Plaines River runs through the city, just east of its downtown area. In 2008, the Illinois Gaming Board awarded the state’s 10th and last casino license to Midwest Gaming and Entertainment LLC to build a 140,000-square-foot casino adjacent to the Tri-State Tollway at the northwest corner of Devon Avenue and Des Plaines River Road. The city approved zoning in early 2010, and the casino opened in July 2011 as Rivers Casino. Des Plaines is the home of the first franchised McDonald’s opened by Ray Kroc, which is preserved as a “museum” on Lee Street, north of downtown.
