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