"The South Side: Chinatown" Chinatown Tip by sambarnett

Chinatown, Chicago: 4 reviews and 4 photos

by sambarnett

Favorite thing: Chinatown centers on Cermak Road (2200 block) and Archer Avenue and extends south to Bridgeport. Its main shopping street, Wentworth Avenue is a feast for the eyes, ears, nose, palate and soul with lots of interesting shops and restaurants. Contemplate freedom of religion while watching Falun Gong exhibitions on the street and catch the Chinese New Year's parade this February 1st. The Cermak/Chinatown stop on the Red Line drops you off in the middle of the action.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
