Do you live in the Chicago area? If you do, you are probably familar with one of my favorite outdoor shopping destinations, Oakbrook Center. From the first time that my Mom took me there during the holidays, it’s always been a special place to visit for shopping and more.
This year Oakbrook Center has new restaurants and an upgraded Adventure to Santa attraction. The opportunities for shopping and holiday experiences are endless thanks to a debut Winter Market and a multitude of new stores.
“The holidays are a special time here at Oakbrook Center, as we create an unparalleled shopping experience for both local and out-of-town guests, ” said Caryn Torres, senior general manager of Oakbrook Center.
When you are ready for a break from shopping, there is a repertoire of restaurants waiting. The District at Oakbrook provides several chef-driven, convenient and affordable fast-casual food options.
Adventure to Santa is a partnership of Oakbrook Center and DreamWorks Animation. It’s a narrated tour featuring the cast of the popular Kung Fu Panda. Reservations can be made online at www.adventuretosanta.com with the purchase of a photo package. It’s open for extended holiday hours through Christmas Eve!
Everyone has at least one fitness enthusiast on their list and two new athletic stores provide great gift options. Fabletics and Peloton at Oakbrook Center have just what you need. Altar’d State has the latest fashion finds and the most sought-after accessories along with charming home decor and gifts. Alex and Ani creates meaningful jewelry and they are crafted in America!
Are you looking for a special gift for the sweets addict on your list? Sugarfina has artisanal candies, packaged in fun, modern giftsets to make a truly sweet gift. If all your shopping is done, take in a film at the state-of-the-art AMC Theatre.
