Top 5 Chicago Neighborhoods

Chicago, Illinois is the 2nd most visited city in the United States and for a good reason. You may know it as the Windy City, home of the famous deep-dish pizza, or our amazing architecture. Some cities are worth visiting because of sights, and others because of their food- but Chicago is one of the cities that have both! Composed of 77 neighborhoods we are here to recommend the top 5 must visit neighborhoods and what to do in each!

Wicker Park

Are you in need to escape the city’s hustle and bustle? Grab some fresh air by taking a walk along the new 606 trail built in 2015. Once a railroad now a converted elevated greenway brining together bikers, runners, and walkers.

Logan Square

Capture your time in Chicago by taking a photo in front of the Greetings From Chicago Mural. The public mural is located along Milwaukee Avenue and Prindiville Street. Once you are done, explore the neighborhood as there are many local boutiques down Milwaukee avenue.

Pilsen

After a long night out exploring the city unwind at Punch House, a hidden basement bar underneath Dusek. This vintage 1970s inspired decor gives you a come-as-you-are vibe. P.S their cocktails are a one of a kind!

Lincoln Park

A combination of tourist and locals visit Lincoln Park zoo yearly. Did you know the zoo is FREE? It is 1 of 3 major zoos left in the country who honor that! No matter what day or year you plan a visit, there are daily events to partake in. Check out the oldest museum with over 200 species of animals.

Loop

No matter if you are into art or not you have to check out Cloud Gate- aka “the bean”- located in Millennium park. This huge outdoor sculpture is shaped like a bean and the mirrored sides reflect the city skylines.
