Top Oak Brook and Chicagoland Attractions

Art & Antique Centre of Oak Brook
This luxurious centre offers art and antique lovers, as well as history buffs, a unique experience to view treasures from around the globe and across centuries. This attraction also offers unique event space and art classes.

Graue Mill and Museum
Graue Mill is the only operating waterwheel gristmill in Illinois. Daily spinning, weaving and milling demonstrations, artifacts displayed in period room settings and an Underground Railroad Exhibit take place throughout the day.

When you want panoramic views of the lake and surrounding skyline – this is the place. At 1,127 feet high “Big John” is the third tallest building in Chicago. Visitors flock to the 94th floor observatory where – on a clear day – they can see four states. But, the observatory isn’t nearly as interesting as the bar that adjoins the Signature Room restaurant on the 95th floor. There’s a little more atmosphere to savor the view and you can purchase a cocktail instead of paying the observatory entry fee.

Famous local historic figures like Louis Armstrong, Ida B. Wells – a women’s rights and African American civil-rights crusader and Bessie Coleman, the first African-American woman pilot are immortalized in bronze in this area that is rapidly becoming gentrified.
Ernest Hemingway Birthplace
Part of the literary legacy of Oak Park, a three-story turreted Queen Anne Victorian stands in frilly contrast to the many streamlined Praire-style homes elsewhere in the neighborhood. There are period-furnished rooms and many photos and artifacts pertaining to Hemingway’s early life. You can even look inside the room in which the author was born on July 21, 1899.
339 N. Oak Park Ave.

Willis Tower Skydeck
The 103rd floor observatory of the Willis Tower offers some of the most amazing views in the country. While you’re up there, visit the interactive exhibits that tell visitors about Chicago’s dreamers, schemers, architects, musicians, writers and sports greats.
Hollywood Casino
Try your luck at Hollywood Casino in Aurora when you visit Hyatt Lisle.  It's 53,000 square feet of action, including 1,180 slot machines and 26 table games.  The casino's pavilion boasts award-winning restaurants.  Sample Epic Buffet, Fairbanks Steakhouse or Take Two, then check out the latest show or peruse the casino's impressive collection of movie memorabilia throughout the property.
Navy Pier
Built during World War I, this 3,000-foot-long pier was a Navy training center for pilots during World War II and has now been transformed into a bustling tourist mecca with a combination of carnival, food court and boat dock.  In the summer months, water taxis speed between Navy Pier and other Chicago sights.
