Downtown DeKalb Attraction


As the western anchor to the booming I-88 Corridor, DeKalb, Illinois is only a little more than an hour from both downtown Chicago and O'Hare International Airport. In spite of its proximity to the Chicago region, Downtown DeKalb maintains its own unique character as a part of a thriving university community with both urban and rural roots.

Rich in history, DeKalb captures the spirit of days gone by in a variety of ways while embracing the future. From historic landmarks to new and remodeled facilities, there is much to explore and enjoy in this vibrant northern Illinois destination boasting historical architectural gems, national and local entertainment, as well as abundant shopping, dining and award-winning recreation.
