“She is novelty; for she is never the Chicago you saw when you passed through the last time.”
The City You Love
There is always a new version of Chicago. Centuries of history and it still manages to reinvent itself every day. An endless chance to explore new things and stay connected to the thing you know.
Being on the lake is a wonder. Crisp fall walks with your dog. Watching the ice form geometric patterns in the winter. Or sharing the beach with your family in the summer. City life with natural beauty, just out your door.
Walking our local neighborhoods is really fun, yet all of Chicago awaits you. Grab an Uber, jump in a shuttle, or take the bus line to the middle of everything. It stops right at our front door.
The City at Your Feet
Chicago is, well, amazing. It has a cultural depth few cities in the world offer. There is no way to summarize it. Here are a few “not to be missed” things to do:
- The Nature Museum
- Loyola University
- DePaul University
- Sailing at Foster Ave. Beach
- Sailing at Montrose Harbor
- The Art Institute of Chicago
- Millennium Park
- Wrigley Field
- Lincoln Park Zoo
- Theater on the Lake
Out our front door is one of Chicago’s most vibrant and diverse neighborhoods — a collision of history, culture, new ideas, and great experiences.
The lake’s great beaches, beautiful parks, dog walks, jazz, burlesque shows, almost endless restaurants, galleries, and shopping, and Graceland Cemetery and Arboretum. And that’s about 2% of it.
Andersonville is cool. There are always fresh new shops, galleries, and restaurants.
The Galleria and Farmers Market are neighborhood staples, where there’s always that hard to find something special.
More than 50 vendors covering three floors. It’s an amazing collection. Apparel, jewelry, artwork, home furnishings, giftware, accessories, antiques, fair trade, and gourmet treats, from the sublime to the unusual. Most vendors are local artists and designers, so many things are one of a kind and handmade. 5247 N. Clark St.
Enjoy fresh, locally grown and prepared food at the Andersonville Farmers Market. Offering organic and sustainably grown fruits and vegetables, free range organic meats and eggs, baked goods, delicious prepared foods, and more. And it’s all grown or produced within 200 miles. Berwyn Ave. & Clark St.
