Directions and Transportation

Bloomington is located right in the middle of Illinois, about 2 1/2 hours south of Chicago.

Directions from Chicago:
From 55 South, take exit 167, Veterans Parkway South. Travel south on
Veterans Parkway for five miles and turn right onto Oakland Avenue.
After two miles turn right onto Clinton Street and travel north for three
blocks. Turn left on Taylor street and travel west for two blocks. The Eaton Garden is at the corner of Evans and Taylor Streets. (map)

Amtrak will take you straight from Chicago to downtown Normal, often for a ridiculously low fare. Make your reservation here.

The Peoria Charter bus line has regular routes from O'Hare and Midway airports to the ISU campus. They are always on time and their buses are nice and clean. Tickets can be purchased at the time of departure. See their schedule here.

Bloomington actually has a number of cab companies, so finding a cab to take you from the train or bus stop to the ceremony, or to hotels and back should be no problem.
Checker Cab (309)828-0123
Red Top Cab (309) 827-9707
Circle City Cab
(309) 829-5342

We plan to arrange shuttles or ride sharing for guests returning to their hotels after the reception. Please check back for more information. (Or let us know if you would like to volunteer as a designated driver!)
