What to do before and after dance class in Norwood Park

There are lots of reasons to love Chicago's Norwood Park in winter

Hands up if you call Norwood Park home? Dance to Evolve dance classes in Norwood Park take place at Mini City on 21.

Aside from our top-notch dance classes, there’s plenty to do in picturesque Norwood Park. It’s easily one of Chicago’s most charming communities.

We’ve searched all across the suburb to assemble this list of the best things to do. Follow it and your kids will never get bored before or after dance class again.


Four fab ideas


Superdawg Drive-In
Founded by Maurie and Flaurie Berman,  Chicago’s only drive-in has been in business since 1948. This Windy City restaurant is famous for its Superdawg. Expect a 100 percent beef burger loaded with golden mustard, piccalilli, kosher dill pickle, chopped Spanish onions, and hot pepper. It’s served on a poppy seed bun with a side of Superfries in a classic red box. Make no mistake: The Superdawg is sure to fill any post-dance class hunger-pangs.

Norwood Park
Looking to let off a little extra steam? Head to Norwood Park, the neighborhood’s 14-acre namesake park that boasts a generously sized outdoor swimming pool replete with waterslides, sports courts, and fields as well as a dog-friendly area. It’s a great, grassy space to while away a morning or afternoon in the city. And like some of the best things in life,  frolicking in the park is absolutely gratis.

Norwood Park Historical Society
History buffs will want to head to the Norwood Park Historical Society aka the oldest house in Chicago. The mansion is open to visitors on Saturday afternoons or by appointment. There’s also an array of programmes on offer including Games Nights (first Friday of the month) and General Interest Programs (third Wednesday of the month). The aforementioned programs are free and open to the public.

Chicagoland Hobby
We love this quirky shop, the brainchild of Richard Bosak who bought the business in 1972. Run by friendly and knowledgeable staff, Chicagoland Hobby’s collection includes model trains, remote control, slot cars, and scouting. It’s fascinating for both adults and children, and a must-visit when in this Chicago suburb.
