Take the Metra. There are shuttle buses from station to Ravinia. Dining options are plentiful but Maribel and Parkview require reservations.

I made the mistake of getting a prepared Greek salad from the Ravinia Market. This "Greek" salad had a total of 2 olives, and about a teaspoon of tiny feta cheese crumbles. It had no peppers. But it had gobs of chickpeas - a cup of them. The offerings at the Market are overpriced in the first place, compared to what you can get from, say, Mariano's, but the salad itself was not worth half the price. When I told the manager, his reaction was "I'll tell the staff" and "is there anything else we can do for you?" Well, the answer to that second question is "no, not now or ever."

Fun show! I have never been to Ravinia and would love to return. By the end everyone was on their feet and dancing! I enjoyed watching the people in the dancing section. Fun time! I would want to take my 10yr old daughter next time.

I thought the music was awesome. I could not sleep last night because I wanted to dance to music in my sleep

Description

Arrival from Sweden formed 13 years ago and today is the largest touring ABBA tribute show in the world, having visited more than 20 nations. It has grown from a six-person production to an incredible spectacle with a dozen cast members performing every song live!

Arrival takes the stage in costumes identical to the ABBA originals, an excusive right granted to them by Owe Sandström, the man behind the design and creation of the ABBA wardrobe. You’ll hear favorites such as “Dancing Queen,” “Money, Money, Money” and “Waterloo.” Arrival’s sound is so close to ABBA’s you’ll believe you’re watching the magic of a real-live ABBA show.
