Beautiful and refine, this noteworthy neighborhood has become home to the melting pot of people that make up Chicago. This neighborhood is a popular and famous destination, due to its close proximity to the lake and downtown, Old Town keeps up an energetic pace day and night. Victorian-period structures, brick alleyways and tight, tree-lined lanes are stunning sights to a lively main strip that runs along Wells Street between North Avenue and Division Street.
For entertainment, it’s all about comedy—with The Second City and Zanies Comedy Club being the go-to spots to get a laugh. The shopping experience offers a variety of options from flavor mixes, imported olive oils, fudge chunks, uncommon wines and premium stogies all available in one trip down Wells.
Family restaurants are fixtures of the neighborhood with an assortment of delicious options to choose from, including but not limited to:
● Steak frites
● And so much more
You can continue to soak up the history that fills the area by visiting one of the more seasoned taverns. However, new bars and fresh spots keep Old Town young at heart.
