If you want to get a feel for quintessential South

one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods. This
historic area is home to two of the city’s most
prominent cultural institutions, the Museum of Science
and Industry and the University of Chicago. A stroll
here will bring you past vintage and grand hotels
converted into luxury apartment buildings; peaceful
