Not too much any more. There is not much to see here except it is now very gentrified. There is a good Persian restaurant two blocks north of Foster. Several Antique stores, a Starbucks and a good bakery. We go there for the Persian restaurant and we do walk Clark street a little.

You can find great deals on second hand furniture, new and repurposed furniture in this neighborhood. I needed a few items for my new apartment and the first Saturday I went looking found everything. I walked into one shop and didn't find anything but asked about other shops in the area that might carry the items. The owner wrote down... More

Andersonville is off the beaten path of tourists, so you'll find locals among the shops, bars and restaurants. Spend an afternoon here, but it tends to wind down earlier than other neighborhoods....perfect for those who are not looking for crowds.

Our guide Phyllis, was extremely knowledgable & informative. From little know secrets (SOFO stands for "South of Foster) and taking us down to a speak-easy's in the basement of Simon's Tavern) my daughter, husband & I had a wonderful time on this walking food tour. We went from a Vietnamese restaurant, to learning about Essanay Studios where Buster Keaton got... More

This town is very charming and very popular. I went on a sunday and the whole town was out and about. It has a nice bakery, shoe store, and lots of options for restaurants.

North side neighborhood known for our Swedish heritage but the tracks are becoming fewer and fewer, but still you can find the Swedish American Museum and SVEA restaurant with several items on its menu that would satisfy a hungry Viking

I am a little bias since I live in the neighborhood but if you are looking for an afternoon/evening out Andersonville is a great place to go. It's easy to get to by the redline (Berwyn or Bryn Mawr and head away from the lake). Take a stroll down Lakewood and check out the old homes of the Lakewood-Balmoral historic... More
