Route

Neighborhood
“Rogers Park is one of Chicago’s most diverse neighborhoods, with approximately 40 different languages spoken. As you might expect, the neighborhood’s dining options are just as diverse. The area’s restaurants will take you on a journey from Mexico to Peru, Jamaica to Ethiopia, Korea to the Middle East, and beyond. If you want a taste of Chicago’s artsy side, Rogers Park is the perfect place to be. Check out the Glenwood Avenue Arts District, an inviting urban stretch with cobblestone streets, sprawling murals, three award-winning theatres, live music venues, art studios and galleries, and more. Head east until you hit the water to see the neighborhood’s sandy shoreline and peaceful waterfront vistas. Near the lake, you’ll find the Emil Bach House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Completed in 1915, it was one of Wright’s last Chicago commissions. Architecture buffs can even book an overnight stay.”
