Wilmington is nestled in the middle of the beautiful Kankakee River Valley, 52 miles south of Chicago. Much of its beauty and charm is attributed to the ideal location on the Kankakee River.
The Kankakee River's northwest flow makes it a rarity among Illinois Rivers. Outdoor recreation is perhaps the biggest attraction the Wilmington area has to offer. The Wilmington neighborhood offers boating and fishing, and the nearby Des Plaines Conservation Area has 4,500 huntable regions.

Wilmington combines all the best aspects of rural and suburban living, outstanding recreational opportunities, rich farmlands, quality public services and an active business community; all within the quiet pace of the city. Wilmington boasts being a part of the historic Route 66 Highway, the Illinois and Michigan Canal, and the Underground Railroad System.
