Accompanied my daughter to Chicago for a conference, and on her off day she wanted to explore this area. We went on a food and walking tour, and enjoyed learning about the history of the neighborhood. Some lovely restoration work! There was a huge arts/crafts fair which we enjoyed. Many fun restaurants. We walked several miles, and enjoyed every minute... More

My family & I did a food tour through Bucktown/Wicker Park which we enjoyed very much. We enjoyed a casual stroll through WP learning about the history of Bucktown & Wicker Park from our knowledgable food tour guide. Unique shops & restaurants in an old town neighbourhood.

We went here with some friends who had recently moved to the Chicago area. We came in to visit for the weekend. Wicker Park is a nice area with lots of trendy shops, restaurants, and bars. We really enjoyed the Myopic Books bookstore that was four floors of used books. We ate at Township and later at Inspirations Kitchen, which... More

I stayed in this neighborhood and I really liked the area. There are a lot of places to eat at like Piece's and Dimo's if you want pizza, and some other nice options. There will always be people around and 24-hours stores

Was here on a beautiful sunny day and it was perfect!! Neat little neighbourhood that just stands out with an attitude of its own! Expect to see people with tattoos, hipster hair, chic effortless style and cool shoes!! No big box stores here - just vintage second-hand shops, small boutiques and interesting restaurants!! A bit out of the way from... More

Visited Wicker Park for a few hours, we were a bit disappointed to be honest. Most shops didn't open until 11 or even 12 so it's not great for a morning visit. Vintage shops quite good, but not the best. Spent some time in Stan's Doughnuts, that was very good! Overall would probably not recommend, we much preferred Old Town.

We did walking food tour through Wicker Park and Bucktown. Highly recommend it... food was ample, I had to put my pizza and gyro in my bag because I was so full. The guide was very knowledgable about the history and architecture... a really great afternoon!

They were interested in some of the stores on Michigan Avenue but really wanted an area with boutiques and vintage clothing shops. Checked TripAdvisor and was recommended the Wicker Park area, near Bucktown and were very pleased with our day! Within a 5 block area, we... More

I must have gone to the wrong part because i was quite dissappointed in wicker park. Non of the shops opened till 11 and it certainly didnt resemble camden in london not to me anyway. Admittedly the residential part i did work through was very attractive especially decorated for halloween. But as a said on the whole i was quite... More
