Hollander Storage & Moving is proud to be a Chicago-area moving services provider. We love this city, so for those moving in from the suburbs, or even from out-of-state, we’ve created a list of some of our favorite places to check out. If you’re moving to Chicago, you won’t want to miss out on these spots.
No trip to Chicago is complete without a visit to Grant Park. Also home to the infamous Buckingham Fountain, this park boasts 319 acres of green space, museums, a rose garden, and an abundance of nearby top-rated restaurants. Grant Park is a great starting off point to any Chicago newcomer.
Right up the street from Grant park is the must see 24.5 acre Millennium Park. The park is home to the public art sculpture Cloud Gate (also known as The Bean) as well as Crown Fountain. Millennium Park has pristine views of Lake Michigan and is home to a number of summer concerts at the Pritzker Pavilion. While you’re visiting, stop in to the highly rated New American restaurant, The Gage.
Art Institute of Chicago
Chicago gets cold in the winter, and a trip to the Art Institute of Chicago is a perfect cold weather activity. It houses a permanent collection of 300,000 works of art and has plenty of rotating exhibits. After an expansion in 2009, the museum is now the second largest art museum in the US. Art Institute of Chicago even offers free admission on Thursday nights (for Illinois residents).
Home of the Chicago Clubs, Wrigley Field has been around for over 100 years. Finished in 1914, it’s one of the oldest Major League Baseball parks in the US. Prepare yourself for fun day at the ball park, because Chicago Cubs fans love their team.
Wicker Park is not only a park, but an entire neighborhood. Boasting some of the trendiest spots in Chicago, you will never run out of things to do among all the neighborhoods high fashion boutique, gourmet restaurants, hip coffee shops, and dive bars. Grab a cup of coffee at The Wormhole and explore from there.

The driver was the head of the crew, and he was on top of everything. He made the experience working with Hollander Moving a pleasure. We have used others before but it was our first time using Hollander. Everything turned out great.
Every employee I worked with was courteous, professional, and exceedingly competent. I was nervous about the packing and long distance move (from Illinois to New Mexico, October 2009) and Hollander helped make the move as smooth as possible. Not a thing was damaged or broken
I would recommend Hollander to any company thinking about switching vendors, and any family making a move. A Hollander rep even stopped by my new place when they were unloading just to check on things.
Wonderful service – first class!
Everything Hollander has done was over the top. It was courteous people, polite, caring. Their friendliness was over the top. There was one member of the crew who’d been a friend for 30 years, and the rest was family. I couldn’t say enough about them.
I recently moved from Chicago to Tampa and expected a few road bumps along the way but was pleasantly surprised when everything from loading to delivery was flawless. Everyone I came in contact with was very professional and knowledgable. I highly recommend Hollander Moving and Storage as they are a class act.
This move envolved packing and delivery to four different destinations. Attention to detail and coordination were vital and effectively executed by Tony R driver and his crew. Ardene did a great job coordinating everything. The entire group were both extremely pleasant and efficient.
