Neighborhood feel.

Nice neighborhood feel. Lots of little local restaurants and bars to pop into and have a bite and a drink.

We were recommended a visit to Andersonville but we were disappointed. Not much of the Swedish roots could be seen even though everything looked old and worn out. The Swedish bakery with all the cookies and pastry was impressive, but there was nothing Swedish about it. We didn´t visit the Museum, perhaps that would have improved our experience. It was...

Yes, Andersonville used to be a Swedish neighborhood, and it still clings to that, though the Swedish connections loosen in the passing years. We still have the Swedish American Museum, Svea (really delicious Swedish pancakes), Simon's (the glogg is top notch in winter), and the Swedish Bakery. But the beauty of this neighborhood is the cultural diversity. We have restaurants... More

Went to the 50th Anniversary of the Midsommer Festival in Andersonville. The Swedish Childrens Choir performed while I was there and they were amazing! Andersonville has such charm and is extremely welcoming. Walk the streets, talk to the locals, visit the unique shops, definitely worth an afternoon stroll.

A very well appointed, diverse, and friendly neighborhood. Young mothers pushing strollers, dog walkers, and the young crowd. Plenty of restaurants and commerce too. Beautiful homes and flowers. Rented a house and glad I did instead of a downtown hotel.

We had a group of 6 couples that just took the train from Chicago to visit this area of Andersonville. It was a short train ride to the Berwyn stop and then about a 5 block walk to the main area. I would say it was about 4 blocks long on both sides of the street for the main shopping... More

We sometimes come back here for the nostalgia related to Swedish roots. But now it has lost its charm in that regard. The modest Museum is the redeeming feature, but the Swedish stores are gone, the eateries are mediocre or fake; sad to say, we will not be back; and people looking for a Swedish connection should not waste their...

Many cute shops, furniture, collectibles, repurposed antiques, restaurants, all things Swedish. Visit the Swedish Museum. Rose Hill Cemetery is not far away.
