    Great urban trail to walk, run, or bike. No cross traffic. Was not too busy on a weekday. Well maintained and lots of access points. 2.7 miles long.

    Wicker Park is fun!
    Offering a new Hyatt Place hotel, myriad great restaurants such as Small Cheval, and several spots to pick up a sweet treat such as Jenni’s Ice Cream, this is one happenin’ place.

    A beautiful, small church by Louis Sullivan--one of his lesser known works, but well worth the visit. Just being in the space was a marvelous experience. The tour was excellent, covering the architecture and construction history, as well as the history of the congregation and aspects of the Orthodox faith, as represented in the exquisite icons and paintings. The tour guide was generous with his time and expertise. The surrounding Ukrainian Village neighborhood makes for a pleasant stroll, as well.

    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.

    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!

    It is worth looking for a parking place to enjoy this unique theater. (Spot Hero is very helpful)
    We were very surprised by the very comfortable bar and spacious , wide open lounge in the lobby with inviting tables and chairs. The polished wooden floor with beautiful area rugs made the space very welcoming. When we return, we will arrive earlier just to enjoy this beautiful space.
    The intimate 200 seat theater was a great space for "Always, Patsy Cline"...every seat seemed to have a great view of the stage, and the sound was perfect without being too uncomfortably loud. The presentation was a walk back in time with the haunting voice of Patsy. Such a demanding role was made to look easy by Harmony France as she sang non-stop. She managed to emote the essence of Patsy within the 26 songs (!) with the help of Danni Smith who played her friend. The story moves well through the talent of both women.
    The Den Theater experience was delightful in every way.

    When you speak to the staff, they are friendly and full of helpful information. They helped me translate some notes from my great grandmother’s photos and I couldn’t be more thankful! The Paderewski room was my favorite - very well done and informative. The collection is interesting and the gift shop is great.

    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.

    Stunning architecture and sacred atmosphere make this a very special place. The Latin Mass is especially beautiful and reverent, worth the drive from the suburbs to attend on Sundays.

    There are different pour sizes so one can taste a few offerings. We were here on a Sunday afternoon and really enjoyed it. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, and good beer.

    Was browsing this site when I came across this gem 💎

    I just knew it would be an excrement to remember.

    No need for old newspaper bags with this one, so count your stars, because you'd need several to clean this wet mess up ✌

    Beautifully crafted so you'd almost think it's a snake. But no, it was built to look just like yesterday's Dog Chow, and definitely not as smelly as you find out on your perfectly manicured lawn by someone that feels it unnecessary to carry an old shopping bag to clean up after their beloved ball of fur with a face.

    So thank you to all who give the privilege of cleaning up after a pet that's not theirs 🙏

    We would never otherwise have this monument to be proud to stick our faces in front of for pictures 🤪

    You can easily walk up to this, but look closely as it's a smaller size and it's behind cars parked on the street. It's right at the corner of an intersection off the sidewalk.

    This place has a lot of hard to find pieces. The staff is very helpful and all prices are negotiable...think American Pickers. That said, items are still pricey even after the negotiation. You better come prepared with your wallet.

    St. Stanislaus Kostka Church was built in the 19th century and is an exquisite example of ecclesiastical architecture. The interior is amazingly beautiful. I visited during the Christmas season and the decorations added to the already gorgeous art and beauty. I've visited Poland and with the icons, majestic altar and art I felt like I was back there.

    The service was traditional in that the priest mainly faced way from the congregation like the did in pre-Vatican II days. Many took communion kneeling, but according to the bulletin, it's up to each person to kneel or stand, take communion on the tongue or in the hand.

    There are seven masses on Sunday and daily mass is at 7pm, M-F. The building is open 24 hours a day.

    This museum does a wonderful job embracing the multicultural identities that makes up the Puerto Rican culture. Upon entry I was greeted but a friendly woman who gave suggestions on the order in which to the view the exhibits. I was pleasantly surprised to learn the museum was free (I went on a Tuesday).

    The exhibit on the first floor had tapestries of art specific to the music original to the island (bomba). It was moving. The music can be heard as soon as you enter the museum. Yes, it made me want to dance!

    I found the second floor the most interesting because the art is specific to the programs created in Puerto Rico by Puerto Rican’s to inspire and educate the people.

    I left this museum with questions I had answered while feeling inspired and proud to be of Puerto Rican heritage. I would recommend this museum to anyone who is curious to learn about the tiny island where millions of Americans are from.

    It really is a small Museum, so you may only need an hour and a half or so to see it all. Once you’re done I recommend making a right out of the museum, walking down division street to Puerto Rico town and getting some gooooos food.
