You can take bus #22 from downtown all the way to Andersonville. Nice area with shops and restaurants. Very walkable. More of an area where locals hangout than touristy like downtown areas.

Stroll on Clark Street through Andersonville, visit the excellent Swedish American Museum, eat and drink in one of the nice restaurants, shop in the Galleria, Gethsemane garden shop or in any of the many other interesting shops along the street. Andersonville will give you a new picture of Chicago.

This is a great area of Chicago. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. There are a lot of great bars and restaurants and the prices are great. It only costs 15-20 dollars in a cab into the centre of Chicago, about 15 mins. We thought it was great wondering about at night you felt safe. Will stay in Andersonville next... More

We took the train which stops at Brhyn Mahr and you walk along a lovely tree-lined sidewalk to Andersonville. Take a left at the end of that road and you are there. Andersonville is lovely, lots of nice shops, some a bit pricey, and nice restaurants. Just a nice neighbourhood to stroll around in. On the way back, we explored... More

Not at all touristy, Andersonville is one of the best neighborhoods on Chicago's north side for just hanging out and browsing through the eclectic shops. The crowd is mostly young locals, so it's a more authentic Chicago experience than downtown's museums and name-brand stores.

Although the Swedish aspect of the neighborhood is slowly giving way to a broader demographic, the people who set up shop and live here still honor the legacy. They celebrate Midsommar with a wonderful festival every May (Midsommarfest). It is not traditionally Swedish themed as would be expected; however, they... More

Before dining at Andie's,we checked out the Galleria. I really like the concept of this place...you can buy items(food,art,soaps,clothing,accessories, etc) which are made by individual artisans! We like the toffees, nuts, hats,jewelry,clothing,purses,art,etc...I could go on and on...! Visit the Galleria and support artisan-made wares!!!
