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...

We stayed in Andersonville while visiting Chicago. It's just a short walk to everything. Shops, eateries you name it. Great tree lined streets and the locals are friendly and helpful. The neighborhood was very diverse which we loved. Tons of vintage homes here too. Train station was close by so when we wanted to go into the city we hopped... More

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
