Great Church

We were visiting Chicago for a week and went to Willow Creek on Sunday morning, the music was great and the message as well. I would definitely come back next time I am in Chicago!

We absolutely love everything about Willow! We drive an hour and a half from Wisconsin every week, each way to attend! It is the largest church we have ever attended, yet every time I walk into the building I feel like I'm home. I personally like the "bigness" of the church but because they have such a large congregation, they... More

We've always wanted to visit Willow Creek and finally made it to Chicago. We attended the Saturday evening Mother's Day service. We followed the crowd into the auditorium just as the service was about to start.

It felt strange coming to a Theatre for church, but not overly so. I went to the Auditorium and admired the beautiful decorations. They... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
