"You MUST find your way to the..." Chicago Favorite Tip by aperion77

Chicago General: 445 reviews and 517 photos

Favorite thing: You MUST find your way to the Clark & Belmont area. It's an area in which many different kinds of people hang out, shop, eat at cafes and just generally have a good time. Walk just two short blocks east and three or four blocks north on Halsted Street and you'll find yourself in Boystown, Chicago's gay & lesbian neighorhood. One of my favorite restaurants in Chicago, The Chicago Diner, is there. Other places you must visit include the Art Institute, the Field Museum, Buckingham Fountain & the Lake Shore Drive bike path.

Fondest memory: Oh this is hard... Stumbling home from the clubs with everyone alert and walking around at 2am like it was 2pm. Gay Pride '99? The parade that year was amazing. Going to the Taste (of Chicago) and seeing the fireworks with a huge group of my friends. Venetian night is fun... Go the the festivals, and you are almost guaranteed a good time. Chicago knows how to party.
