Andersonville, just a few blocks from the lakefront, is another diverse Chicago neighborhood with a high walk score. It has a long-standing affiliation with the Swedish community and is home to the wonderful Swedish American Museum.
Andersonville is made up almost entirely of independent businesses and has a refreshing lack of chain stores. For a really authentic, old-Chicago feel this is the place to go!
Some of my favorite places are Hopleaf Bar (craft beer and best mussels ever) and Hamburger Mary’s for a fantastic burger and in-house theater. Calo Restaurant is wonderful for Italian food and has been family owned since 1963 – I particularly recommend the fresh fish and amazing ribs.
There’s also a wonderfully calming vibe and many pretty articles to be found in Martha Mae: Art Supplies & Beautiful Things.
