when life hands you a day in Chicago with nothing to do, and a super ill Rabbi with a car (and a lot of salami) offering to take you and yer lovely wife anywhere, you go movie location sightseeing, right????
I mean, Chicago and its burbs are home to many a John Hughes movies, and if you don’t want to revisit the places where John Hughes movies were shot, you probably should be shot, right???
well, this is the John Hughes driving tour I quickly cobbled together (which MUCH help from this site)…
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Ferris’ High School
The ‘Save Ferris’ Water Tower
behind the Cedarbrook Public Library – 1201 Cedar Lane, Northbrook, Illinois 60062
The Breakfast Club
Shermer High School
Buck Russell’s Brother’s House
The McCallister Home
and while the following was not a John Hughes movie, it was around the corner from Cameron’s house!!!
Joel Goodson’s House
crap, in the process of recapping, forgot to visit the Sixteen Candles locations
some more Hughes location pics were also taken from here
