Once your Chicago moving company pulls away, if you’re new to the city you may want to check out the best of Chicago. Here are five interesting sights to see in the Chicago area:
1. The Lakeshore Path
One of the best parts of Chicago is that the city is located on the water: a land locked state with beaches and waterfront running paths. It doesn’t get much better than that. The lakefront path goes for miles. Start at North Avenue Beach and you can walk south to Navy Pier, or north toward Lincoln Park.
2. The Museums
Some people like museums, and some hate them, but if you’re even a little bit indifferent there are some wonderful museums to visit during a cold winter day. Our favorites include the Museum of Science and Industry, the Art Institute, and the Field Museum. Some of the smaller museums, but no less interesting, are the Adler Planetarium and the Shedd Aquarium.
3. The Food
So, food isn’t really a “sight,” but we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that Chicago has some of the best food in the country. If you’re not willing to throw down hundreds of dollars for Alinea or Next, think about trying Longman & Eagle in Logan Square, or Prasino in Wicker Park. There’s also Smoque for the best BBQ in Chicago, and Piece for great pizza.
4. The Beer
Chicago has some great bars with great beers. For a truly memorable experience, hit up Hopleaf in Andersonville for a beer list that will make your eyes pop, and great food to boot. The Map Room in Bucktown is equally as impressive, and you have to head to Goose Island for some of Chicago’s most favorite brews.
5. The Neighborhoods
One of the best parts about Chicago is the distinction of all the neighborhoods. Lincoln Park is upscale and has beautiful old brownstones, while Logan Square has a bit more hipster. Take some time to go through all the neighborhoods and absorb some of their charm. Our favorites are: Wicker Park, Lincoln Park, Andersonville, and Logans Square.
Once the last box is unloaded from your Chicago moving company’s truck, head out to see the sights of this amazing city.
