Arlington Heights is a village in Cook County in the U.S. state of Illinois. A suburb of Chicago, it lies about northwest of the city's downtown. The population was 75,101 at the 2010 census.[1] It is the most populous community in the United States that is incorporated as a "village", although it is not far ahead of its nearby Illinois neighboring villages of Schaumburg and Bolingbrook.

Arlington Heights is known for Arlington Park Race Track, home of the Arlington Million, a Breeders' Cup qualifying event; it also hosted the Breeders' Cup Classic in 2002. The village is also home to the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, which has one of the largest collections in the state.
