I am 25 and I am currently leaving 2 hours south of chicago. I have been there for 2 days already, mostly in the north side of the... Although I really liked it, I felt it was more for old people. What is the best neighbourhood in Chicago for a short trip, to hang around, go to bars, etc?


City: Chicago

State: Illinois

Country: United States


Depends what kind of 25-year-old you are. Wrigleyville is for sports fans that like to get rowdy. Hipster heaven is over in Wicker Park/Bucktown. There's some great shopping and food (if a bit pricey) in Lincoln Park, and it's more local than touristy (compared to downtown). If you're not quite straight (or even if you are), Boystown is loads of fun. Let me know what you like to do and I'll tell you a few great places to check out.
