Chicago's North Shore is full of friendly people, fantastic dining, and quaint, suburban villages. The village of Northbrook, Illinois, is no exception. On the northern edge of Cook County, Northbrook is the birthplace of director John Hughes of '80s and '90s movie fame. In fact, many of his movies were set in fictional Shermerville, Illinois, a town partly based on his hometown. If this sounds cool to you, rent a car in Northbrook to explore the city today.
Drivers heading to Northbrook often come for the shopping and stay for the dining. Northbrook Court mall is a regional destination with boutiques, clothing stores, and other shopping options. After a day's shopping, you can refuel at one of the town's Italian restaurants, many of which specialize in authentic Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. Northbrook is also home to the Ed Rudolph Velodrome, a famous bicycle racing track that has hosted some of the country's most important cycling races.
