Hey Guys,

I'm in Chicago for a couple of days, and was wondering if anyone could tell me were some hobby shops are close to the city? I'm by the lake just north of Lincoln park.

Thanks

There really aren't any decent ones in the city that I can think of. If you want to take a drive you can go out to Al's Hobby in Elmhurst or Venture Hobby in Wheeling. Al's is definately better for Heli stuff though.

Al's Hobby Shop in Elmhurst is pretty good. And actually there is no need to drive. The shop is located right near the Elmhurst Metra station (Union Pacific/West Line).

I was at Venture Hobby when I was there last, good shop but is about 30 min drive North of chicago. From what I remember they had more of a selection of planes over helis. I was flying planes at the time and found it worth the trip.
