Home Alone | 1990

Home Alone location: 671 Lincoln Avenue, Winnetka, Illinois
Home Alone location: Kevin’s house: 671 Lincoln Avenue, Winnetka, Illinois

The house of Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) is to the north of Chicago, at 671 Lincoln Avenue, Winnetka (rail: Winnetka, Metra Commuter line from Ogilvie Transportation Center). I’m sure I don’t have to remind you that this is a private home and not to disturb the residents.

Nearby is the green where Kevin visits Santa Claus, Station Park, in front of Winnetka Village Hall, Green Bay Road.

Home Alone location: Grace Episcopal Church, 924 Lake Street, Oak Park, Illinois
Home Alone location: the church interior: Grace Episcopal Church, 924 Lake Street, Oak Park, Illinois

The green with the bandstand, where Kevin shops for a toothbrush, is one stop north of Winnetka, at Hubbard Woods. The ‘pharmacist’ store was a branch of bakery chain Panera Bread, 940 Green Bay Road on the corner of Gage Street. It closed its doors in 2015.

Way over in the western suburb of Oak Park is Grace Episcopal Church, 924 Lake Street, which supplied the church interiors.

Home Alone location: Trinity United Methodist Church, 1024 West Lake Avenue, Wilmette, Illinois
Home Alone location: the church exterior: Trinity United Methodist Church, 1024 West Lake Avenue, Wilmette, Illinois

Don't recognise it? That's because the exterior seen is Trinity United Methodist Church, 1024 West Lake Avenue, Wilmette, way north of Chicago.

Home Alone location: O'Hare Airport, Chicago
Home Alone location: Chicago O’Hare – and Paris, too: O'Hare Airport, Chicago

The airport from which the family leaves is, of course, O’Hare International Airport. And the ‘Paris’ airport at which they land? Well, wouldn't you know it, that’s O’Hare too.
