Oak Park, Illinois & Andrea Bocelli

Oak Park, Illinois is one of my favorite places to visit.  Located right outside of Chicago it was designed for families that want that city feel without actually living in the city.  Oak Park has been home to some influential people, including Ernest Hemingway and Frank Lloyd Wright; In fact, you will find many of his home designs here.  Downtown Oak Park is full of shops and restaurants and hosts countless community activities year-round.  I made the trip with my mom and niece to see Andrea Bocelli, but we took full advantage of the area while we were there and so I want to share with you the places we stayed, dined, and shopped along the way.
