Things to Do When You Live in Apartments Near a Metra Station

Commuting and traveling has never been easier—at ONE, walk out of your apartment and hop onto the Metra next door to work, to family or to fun. And speaking of fun: we’re sharing our favorite day trips you can take on the Metra.

Since our apartments are near a Metra train station, our tenants are able to explore much, much more than Wheeling. The Wheeling Metra stop is located on the North Central Service (NCS) line, traveling all the way from Union Station in Chicago out to Antioch—which means the options for adventure are endless.

Union Station – Chicago

Venture from the suburbs to the city for a day of fun—the first stop on the NCS Metra is in the heart of Chicago. Once there, you can explore Millennium Park, Magnificent Mile shopping, Navy Pier, the array of museum options the city has to offer and more. 


The Village of Rosemont has created a “thriving mecca of tourism, entertainment and convention and trade-show business, attracting visitors from around the world.” Only a short ride away from Wheeling on the Metra, you can take advantage of the events happening at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center; upcoming events include The Ultimate Women’s Expo, Great Food Expo and the International Gem & Jewelry Show.


Thinking of taking a trip on a bigger scale? You’re connected to Chicago’s best and biggest airport right outside your door. The NCS Metra will take you directly to O’Hare, so that catching your next flight has never been easier.

Buffalo Grove

Looking for your new favorite place to drink? Look no further. Take the Metra one stop over from Wheeling to a craft microbrewery. Prairie Krafts Brewing in Buffalo Grove has a taproom open seven days a week with twelve rotating taps of ales and lagers. The best part is—you don’t have to worry about a designated driver because the Metra has you covered.
