Wicker Park & Bucktown Attractions in Chicago

If you have seen all the museums and major landmarks of Chicago then it is time to explore some of Chicagoans favorite neighborhoods. Wicker Park/Bucktown is a hip neighborhood full of eclectic restaurants and trendy shops, but its' most interesting attribute is the artists presence. Once a thriving artists community, it is now more main stream, but you can still find quirky bookstores and odd shops. If this interests you make a stop at Beadnik and design your own jewelry, then stop at Goddess and Grocer for an organic lunch. Many ethnic groups put roots down in this neighborhood, to learn more about the history of them, visit the Polish Museum of America and the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art. It is also interesting to visit St. Stanislaus Kostka Church to learn more about the Polish culture, and the Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Cathedral, for its' elaborate interior. You may also want to take a needed rest at the Ruby Room spa, or at the luxurious Division Street Russian Baths. Young children will also enjoy seeing a play at the Chicago Children's Theater, and young adults will want to catch the latest concert at the Congress Theater.
