    Came for the architecture and left with a rich understanding of the intersection between historical religious figures and Chicago industrialists. Couldn’t stop Googling to learn more when I got home. Grace is a passionately authentic tour guide.

    Cool and hip neighborhood with lots of shops, stores, apartments. It is a good place to stroll and shop for various items. There are coffee shops, vintage clothing shops, vinyl record shops, and more. Go for a walk along North or Milwaukee Ave.

    Words can’t express how beautiful historic inner-city church’s are. This parish was established by Polish immigrants around the turn of the century. I went to a Latin mass Monday morning.

    It's a small but nice museum. The people who run it are very friendly. They are eager to tell you about the culture and history of Ukraine, which is very nice. The museum is free. They do take donations. You will see and learn a lot about Ukraine. The egg collection is beautiful!

    We enjoyed this urban trail for three days in a row. It does get busy, but it is walkers, joggers and bikers only. The neighborhood has shops, restaurants, apartments, houses. We enjoyed this 2.7 mile trail very much and will return whenever we are in the area. I recommend!

    Intuit is a museum dedicated to presenting self-taught art, the work of artists outside of the mainstream art. I loved it! While I visited, they presented Jerry’s Map by Jerry Gretzinger and "Surrender to Survival" by Justin Duerr. It is a wonderful place to get familiar with unique artists. They also have a small shop carrying cool artsy items - a great place for buying gifts.

    We had appetizers before so took an Uber and walked to venue. Show started promptly (saw sugar Sammy) and I would say the tables would be tickets to have. All other seats are along the perimeter and we had a pillar blocking our view. We were able to move down so not a problem. Supposedly with ticket purchase you must order two beverages but, we were never waited on? Even after downloading the QR code. It was fine and we enjoyed the show as he was very interactive with the audience.

    Amazing tour provided by the tour guide Elena. Not only is the art truly amazing, Elena cares what she is talking about and makes it an excellent tour from the start. Her knowledge of all the art, the Ukrainian art and that are that's not Ukrainian, is fantastic and she really makes it a great tour!

    While not huge, this museum has lots of interesting historic items and art work. I especially enjoyed the art work and craft items.

    We have a tradition with neighbors to spend one day a month exploring a new neighborhood in Chicago. It was Humboldt Park's turn, and the main attraction on a lovely late summer/early fall day was Humboldt Park itself! Definitely worth exploring. The park is HUGE and had several beautiful pavilions and vistas. It was a great place to walk, catch-up, and see Chicago in-action.

    Spend some time in the field house; it's architecture is beautiful and there's some neat features inside. The pavilion is also gorgeous, with nice views of the water and families having fun in the park. There are several statues throughout the park, including one of the namesake (a German who made important contributions to science). We also enjoyed reading some online history about the park and its surrounding neighborhood--it's played big roles in the history of Chicago's significant Polish and Puerto Rican communities. The crowd in the park during our visit was diverse--great to see families out enjoying a great city's parks on a beautiful day.

    As a high school community we've seen every staging of "The Nutcracker" since its inception and continue to be transported time and again. When the House says "Once Upon A Time..." the psychological guards go down and my students find themselves alive in a world more real than this one. Giant rats are slain, families reunite and Christmas comes back with deeper meaning. There isn't a better transformative experience for this magical season here in Chicago. The physical space gets reconfigured as does the viewers soul space. Come see for yourself!!

    This experience was 5 out of 5. We attended on a Friday afternoon and the museum was pretty empty with only a few other guests. The art was amazing and the staff were friendly and welcoming.

    Bottom line: The overall vibe and experience was awesome! I would certainly come back. I went with friends and we each had a lovely and more importantly, relaxing time.
    PROS: Easy to make appt. Easy check-in process. Relaxing vibe. Adequate changing area. Many different temperature baths to choose from....my favorite was probably the bath located outdoors and the warm baths. You are given adequate time to roam and enjoy the facilities. There is a self serve station for salt/exfoliate scrub. They seem to have a effective system for crowd control. Staff is rather knowledgeable.

    CONS: My massage wasn't that great. Unfortunately, I have to say this was probably the worst massage I have ever experienced. But the massage should not sway visitors as my friends had awesome massages. Pre-payment is required. First time I had ever experienced paying for a service before the service is received but I understand its their policy.

    Tips: Bring your swim suit and a your fav toiletries. They do offer the basics (do not offer wash cloths). Be prepared to wear their swim shoes. The building is so unassuming and the front entrance is located in an alley.

    Coolest brewery in Chicago. The owner Mark was solid. He's a huge music & beer lover so opens up this music themed brewery. Such a cool space. Told me how covid hit soon after opening, but he made it through. Thank you for a great afternoon. Nice meeting you Mark!
