The village of Willowbrook offers a change of pace from the bustle of nearby Chicago. That doesn’t mean you have to miss out on big-city perks, though. There are a wealth of shopping opportunities, for example, at the Oakbrook Center mall and the Promenade Bolingbrook. About 23 miles away, downtown Chicago’s skyscrapers soar into the cloudscape. Brimming with world-class museums, restaurants, and theaters, the city is easily navigable via public transportation. Be sure to pay a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art, which features rotating exhibits showcasing eminent American and international artists.
