Chicago Neighborhood Guide: Old Town
Old Town is a quaint neighborhood of boutiques, restaurants & entertainment. From the loop, take the CTA red line to Division walk east to Wells.
To your right is the neighbor's oldest restaurant. Walk that side of the street & look for numbered posts that explain area history...
...the numbered posts are odd on west side of street and even on the east side. Walk north to visit boutiques, and enjoy different restaurants.
Continue north on Wells and note a few places that are worth a visit, like La Fournette Bakery for chocolate or almond croissants!
For belly laughs on culture or current events, visit Zanies or Second City! (Tip: Casts of SC hang out at the OT Ale House, Chicago's best dive bar)!
Second City is 1/2 blk N of Wells & North Ave. Next, walk east on North Ave and travel 2 blocks to visit the Chicago History Museum ...
...or walk north on Wells for historic architecture (turn left at Eugenie St., walk to 300 blk). Also 1700 blk of Crilly St. (on right from Eugenie).
