Chicago's North Park
neighborhood is home to Northeastern Illinois University and it lies close to downtown Chicago, making for quick morning commutes to the city's business district. Single-family homes
on peaceful, tree-lined streets provide the perks of suburban living within minutes of everything Chicago offers.
North Park's 39-acre Gompers Park provides a big draw for the locals with a pool, lagoon, tennis courts, and its roller hockey area. Natives also frequent the North Park Village Nature Center, a 46-acre preserve with lots of walking trails. For not-so-outdoorsy types, Amundson Mysteries awaits. Sit down to a murder-mystery dinner and put your sleuthing skills to work.
An abundance of local watering holes cater to every taste. Slip into sushi spot Rice & Roll for a Godzilla roll, sample the octopus at Midori, or nosh on gold-medal-winning handmade truffles and French pastries at Beijo de Chocolat.
