FIVE THINGS TO DO
Comfort Station was built in 1926 as one of many warming stations and public restrooms along early transit lines. Today Comfort Station hosts live music and film screenings.
The Illinois Centennial Monument
Built in 1918 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Illinois’ statehood, the monument was designed by Henry Bacon. (The behind Washington DC’s Lincoln Monument.) When the weather is warm, locals sprawl out on the monument’s steps.
Logan Square Farmers Market
This thriving market, one of Chicago’s only weekly, nearly year-long farmers markets, started in 2005. Approximately 55 vendors from Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan arrive every week to sell fresh, healthy produce to happy punters.
We love WhirlyBall – a made-up game combining lacrosse, hockey, basketball, and suped-up bumper cars. WhirlyBall’s Buckland location also has a bowling alley and laser tag. It’s a great spot for your little dancer’s next birthday party.
A veritable Chicago institution, this classic ice-cream parlor counts Al Capone and the Beatles as just some of its high-profile past customers. Head here for heavenly sundae combinations that come in giant clamshell bowls, shakes, sodas, homemade candy, and hot fudge served in its own silver pot. Don’t miss the marble soda fountain.
