I took the Chicago for Chicagoans tour of Wicker Park with the energetic and well researched Patti Swanson. They readily gave this tourist, "Chicagoan" status and we saw a neighborhood mixed with stories of wealth and woes, renaissance and repurposing, architecture, sociological perspective, beauty and...More

Fun place to visit while in Chicago. Didn't get to spend enough time in this area. It has a lot of shopping and restaurants for pleasure. If I get back to Chicago I must spend more time in this area.

This was a great spot to meet friends when I visited Chicago. We went to Paradise Park for dinner. It’s decorated with Christmas lights and sparkly walls. There were many TVs with sports on them but I would say this is a far cry from...More
