    The shot in Clark’s office, behind him is a window. With what appears to be the Southside of the Renaissance Hotel on the corner of Wacker & State in Chicago. From that perspective it was shot next door in the 35 W. Wacker. Was B roll footage shot at 35 W. Wacker for this shot?

    Where were the scenes filmed where the Griswolds are driving through a mountainous area looking for a Christmas tree? That definitely isn’t near Chicago. I’m thinking somewhere in the Northwest.
