Lockport and Homer Glen are charming suburbs conveniently located 30 miles southeast of Chicago and 5 miles outside of Joliet. Major roads such as I-55 and I-355 are centrally located within the suburbs, making out of town driving a breeze. The Metra Heritage Corridor provides swift and easy transportation between Lockport, Joliet, and Union Station in downtown Chicago.
These towns are dotted with darling local businesses and incredible gourmet eateries such as Tallgrass Restaurant and Mamma Onesta’s. The villages also carry a rich and unique legacy. Lockport is nestled along the I&M Canal, one of the first passages to the Mississippi River responsible for making Chicago a Midwest transportation hub. The canal site and the downtown main streets of these suburbs house some of the most beautiful historic sites in northern Illinois, showcased by the Illinois State Museum Lockport Gallery, the Gladys Fox Museum, and the Lincoln Landing.
