Our Neighbourhood

The Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago is a wonderful area that is located very close to downtown and "the loop."  Bucktown is an upscale family neighborhood.  Our home is located on a quiet tree lined street, but a short walk (5 minutes) takes you to a much busier area where you can find designer shops and vintage stores, art galleries, wine bars, plenty of delicious restaurants, and a fun nightlife.  http://www.chicagotraveler.com/neighborhoods/wicker-park-bucktown-feature.htm
If you decide to leave the neighborhood, downtown Chicago is only a 10 minute train ride away.  The "blue line" train stop is a five minute walk from our home, and this train also takes you directly to O'Hare airport.  It is very convenient, and there is no need for a car.
In the downtown area you will find some of America's best theatre, museums, dining, sports, shopping, and architecture.  There is world famous shopping on Michigan Ave., the "Magnificent Mile."  http://www.aviewoncities.com/chicago/magnificentmile.htm
You cann watch a production at one of the many theatres.  http://www.broadwayinchicago.com/ 
If you are a fan of animals, the (free) Lincoln Park zoo is nearby. http://www.lpzoo.org/., as well as the Shedd Aquarium, which is the largest indoor aquarium in the world: http://www.sheddaquarium.org/
See the beautiful views from the Sears Tower, the tallest building in North America, http://www.aviewoncities.com/chicago/searstower.htm
Chicago's museums rank among the best in the world, and include the Museum of Science and Industry, the Field Museum of Natural History, The Art Institute, Museum of Contemporary Art and Adler Planetarium.
And of course, the beautiful Lake Michigan and its boats and beaches are only a 15 minute ride away.  http://www.chicagoparkdistrict.com/resources/beaches/ 
We are also only 20 minutes from the famous Wrigley Field, where the Chicago Cubs baseball team plays.
We will prepare for you a packet with directions and lists of all of our favorite places in Chicago, including the various farmer's markets.  There is something for everyone here in Chicago, and our location is perfect for visiting the city.
