Anyone from Chicago?

I’m about to visit over there and I was wanting to learn what I could about the town beforehand.

What areas are worth visiting and which ones should be avoided is mainly what I’m after.

I’ll be visiting with family and spending a lot of time down town, but later on I kind of want to branch out and get a feel for the surrounding area. Lot’s of suburbs. To many to explore in one go. Needing some guidance.

I’ve been to Chicago a few times. As I’m sure you’re quite aware, just stay away from the south side. One of the most violent areas in all the us.

What are you looking for? My family’s North Side, so my recs would be in that vein. Had a friend from Riverside, which is apparently still lit by gaslights? Never been myself.

I suspect the things I like might not be the same as the things you like :smile_cat:

Well… I don’t really know. The mess of downtown can be a chore… it’s more like looking for the town I live in now but with the rest of chicago built around it

Chicago is where Mortal Kombat video games were created. I wonder if it has a section in the museum


Chicagoan from cake town.
Danger zones: Englewood,Chicago heights,Sauk village,dolton,Harvey,some of uptown ,east Chicago,anywhere close to the low end. Logan square is a hot zone, Hyde park is somewhat hot.south side. Mainly don’t walk around at night with a iPhone. Be cautious on the trains especially the red line. And bring a gun…if you plan on living safe.
