The team at eTech360 realize that happy employees are more productive, and this was a prime consideration when choosing a location for their company.

Their covered patio will accommodate you whether you are in the mood for being indoors or out, and their casual fare with a friendly service will never disappoint.Bars

The Northbrook Court has far more than the aforementioned AMC Dine-In theaters to keep you busy. It is also the location for some of the best shopping you will find anywhere near eTech360. You can spend the day shopping for clothes and accessories at Abercrombie & Fitch, the Gap, Macy's, J. Crew or Lord & Taylor, and then see to your technology needs at Cellular, Inc. or the Apple Store.
You will find yourself blown away by the variety of shopping available here for clothing, home, beauty, gifts and electronics. This mall is a particularly good place to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon if you have children. Funtopia enables kids to have fun away from their electronic devices with a mix of climbing and slides and other physical activities. Little ones will also enjoy painting their own ceramics at Color Me Mine, and the adults can kick back later at Starbucks or the Mingle Juice Bar just to name a couple of the culinary options.
Located in Skokie, Westfield Old Orchard is another great place for shopping, dining and playing. In contrast to Northbrook Mall and The Glen Town Center, this is an outdoor mall, which makes it a favorite option on a beautiful day. There are plenty of big-name stores to choose from including Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic and others. There are also an impressive number of less well known stores and plenty of eateries such as the Shake Shack, Maggiano's Little Italy and The Bagel Restaurant and Deli.
When you wish to be surrounded by beautiful greenery, you should go to the Chicago Botanic Garden. Located just under five miles away from the office, its 385 meticulously landscaped acres are a breath of fresh air after being indoors most of the week. Including such cultural attractions as a Japanese garden, this is an excellent place to bring a date or friends, family and children.
If you're the kind of person who enjoys recreation on the water, look no further than Skokie Lagoons. With nearly 900 acres of peaceful pools and winding channels, this is the best spot in the area for boating and fishing. Whether you're into canoeing, kayaking, sailboats or rowboats, you can do it all here on the weekend.
When you just need a place to work out, you should go to LA Fitness. Conveniently located in Glenview, they offer discounted memberships. LA Fitness has an impressive list of amenities and features including basketball, racquetball, an indoor pool, and a whirlpool and sauna. They have group fitness classes, personal training, and cutting-edge machines and equipment for when you want to work out on your own. Wi-Fi throughout the facility enables you to stay connected, and if you have kids, they will enjoy their Kid's Klub.
Getting around town to see and experience all of the amazing things around eTech360 is easy. Nearly all of the amenities mentioned here have bus stops near or at their locations. The furthest walk will be when you head out from eTech360 to the bus stop located at the intersection of Skokie Boulevard and Dundee Road. As you can imagine, the major shopping and entertainment venues are located right along bus routes. You will need to check for the nearest stops where you live, of course, if you head out to any of these attractions from your home.
As much as Northbrook and its neighboring cities and towns have to offer, the crown jewel of amenities for your enjoyment is the city of Chicago just under 25 miles away down Interstate 94. Here you can check out the Navy Pier to enjoy fun rides with plenty of shops and food. Perhaps the Shedd Aquarium is more your style. There you can look at a wide variety of sea life from around the world. Millennium Park is a favorite destination for those who enjoy art, the theater and ice skating. On your time off from eTech360, you will not have any shortage of fun things to do to fill your evenings and weekends while building friendships or enjoying time with family and loved ones.
