Wicker Park is one of the best neighborhoods in Chicago for nightlife, restaurants, bars and shopping. Downtown is great for sightseeing but Wicker Park is where you will want to spend all of your time. You can literally see the trains on the blue line as they pass by a block away. Wicker Park is the hippest place in Chicago and is only two stops from the city center and five stops from the Willis (Sears) Tower and Union Station.
