Train-Watching on Roosevelt Road

You're likely to see upwards of 500 freight trains passing through Chicago and nearby suburbs on any given day. Because of this, and a rich history tied, in many ways, to the freight and passenger car industry, is often referred to as the "railroad capital."

Make your way into the Chicago area, and prepare for a day of train-watching. Some call it trainspotting, but no matter – you'll find a full days worth on Roosevelt Road. Easily accessed from nearby Hillside, Roosevelt Road stretches east to west as a straight shot into downtown Chicago, and is one of the premier roadside attractions in the state.

Enjoy a stroll along the Roosevelt Road Bridge, which has plenty of sidewalk room – this yields some of the most exceptional views of both the downtown Chicago skyline, and the many trains which move, seemingly, non-stop.
