Though well known for its downtown district, the Boston Globe discovers Chicago’s buzziest neighborhoods lay just off the beaten path.
Take, for example, the cool enclave of Wicker Park/Bucktown on the city’s west side. Here, visitors explore vintage shops, used book and record stores, hidden speakeasies and live music venues.
To the south is the Hyde Park neighborhood, President Obama’s former home and future site of his Presidential Center. Anchored by the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago, Hyde Park is a trendy place with hip restaurants, boutique hotels, leafy parks and elegant architecture.
The neighborhood of Pilsen is also worth a visit. Today it’s one of the largest Mexican communities in Chicago, filled with traditional restaurants, vibrant street art and specialty shops.
