Von Maur is the anchor department store -- famous for its free gift wrap and shipping; extensive shoe department; and amazing customer service. Plenty of other shops (including Dick's); many restaurants; movie theater; and both free street and lot parking.

The Glen在Glenview。地点在Glenview北火车站的西南边。步行十五分。免费入场。The Glen有餐厅,电影院,咖啡店,百货商店,陶器店,科技店。拜访的最佳时间是星期五放学后。我觉得The Glen比Northbrook有意思。享受你的旅行。
