With over 77 neighborhoods, Chicago is a tapestry of cultural history. Whether you find yourself on the north, south, east, or west side of the city, the richness of this multi-cultural city ensures something for everyone.

While exploring the city’s north side, you will find the small-town European charm of Andersonville. Its strong Swedish-American roots are represented at the Swedish American Museum Center. Immigrants from Germany, Greece, Eastern Europe, and Mexico settled in the neighborhood of Lincoln Square, which proudly shows its heritage through public art works and architecture. Have a taste for Indian, Jewish, or Middle Eastern food? Enjoy the restaurants of the Devon Avenue neighborhood, where Chicago ’s Indian and Pakistani communities, along with Jewish and Middle Eastern communities, live and work side-by-side.

The city’s south side can give you insight into African American heritage by exploring historic Bronzeville, the DuSable Museum of African American History, Jokes and Notes, and the Bronzeville Children’s Museum. Be inspired by the art and culture of today’s youth by visiting The Little Black Pearl Workshop located in the Kenwood/Oakland neighborhoods or savor the Chinese cuisine while strolling through the streets of Chinatown.

On the city’s west side, Humbolt Park was originally home to Norwegians, Swedish, German, and Jewish families, and now has become home to a vibrant Puerto Rican community. Stop at this neighborhood’s Institute of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture to learn about all the contributions Puerto Ricans have made to their broader communities. West Town is comprised of the East Village, Bucktown/Wicker Park, Noble Square, Eckerhart Park, and the Ukrainian Village neighborhoods.  While Bucktown/Wicker Park is home to many Chicago artists, many of whom are featured at the Around the Coyote arts fair, the Ukrainian Village features numerous ornate orthodox cathedrals and The Ukrainian National Museum. Celebrate Latino heritage, culture, and some of the best tacos for miles around with a visit to Pilsen and Little Village, on the lower west side.  While you’re there, visit The Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum, which showcases the nation’s finest collection of Mexican art.

Recreation and Sports

Chicago has many opportunities for recreation. With over 7,300 acres of parkland, 33 beaches and 10 bird and wildlife gardens, the city is filled with endless opportunities for outdoor activity.  Visit Millenium Park, Chicago’s newest park to experience world renowned landscaping and architecture.

“Loyal” is the best word to describe the avid Chicago sports fans. Whether they are watching the Cubs at historic Wrigley Field, catching a Bears game at the newly renovated Soldier Field, or a taking in a Bulls, White Sox, or Blackhawks game, Chicago fans are always there to root on their favorite team.

Arts & Entertainment

There is so much to experience in Chicago, that it is difficult to list it all.  Explore the Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, and the Field Museum of Natural History for an educational experience for all ages.  Shop the Magnificent Mile, climb to the top of the Willis Tower and the Hancock Tower to see a bird’s-eye view of the city.  Visit the Art Institute, Museum of Contemporary Art, and enjoy a concert with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra or Lyric Opera all in one day!  If you still have some energy, discover where Jazz began at the Jazz Institute of Chicago and tap your foot to whomever is playing at the famous House of Blues.  You also can not miss out on all the great activities and festivals that Chicago has to offer in the summer.
