Old Town

Learn about Old Town

Old Town is a Chicago neighborhood located directly north to the “Downtown” area, which makes it highly desirable for those who want the proximity to the City while still getting that neighborhood feel. Its fitting that Old Town’s name originates from the art fairs held in the 1940’s called the “Old Town Holiday”, because Old Town still hosts one of the biggest art fairs in Chicago on its legendary Wells Street. With access to all the great things Chicago has to offer it's no wonder why it's one of Chicago’s most desirable neighborhoods. Enjoy views of the Lake, the Skyline and the Old Town signs that welcome you into the area in such a charming way.

The charm doesn't stop there though as vintage victorian era buildings intertwine with beautiful new developments to give a wide variety of housing options on top of its beauty. Out of all the attractions that Old Town has to offer everyone, Wells Street might be its best. Walk up and down the street and take your pick of anything you want to do. Stop in to Topo Gigio’s and enjoy some of Chicago’s most authentic Italian cuisine, pay the bill and head over to Pour House for after dinner drinks and then prepare to laugh at The Second City Improv Theater that has seen many great comedians walk through the doors, like Chris Farley. Whatever your taste, Old Town is sure to be able to offer it as it is one of Chicago’s premier neighborhoods!
