Getting Around Chicago Lawn

Around Chicago Lawn

Chicago Lawn is an all-around affordable neighborhood with ample parking and decent proximity to the CTA. Moving closer to main streets, such as Western Avenue, South Francisco Avenue, South Artesian Avenue, and West 65th Street, will prove to be more costly.

The culinary scene in Chicago Lawn is vibrant, to say the least. Family-owned restaurants serve traditional cuisines from many different countries. You could have Middle Eastern food on Monday, Caribbean food on Wednesday, and round it out with some Latin American fare on Friday.

You are likely to see families and individual alike outside enjoying Marquette Park. There are industrial complexes and railroads along the southern border of the neighborhood, but the rest of Chicago Lawn is full of homes and businesses. South Western Avenue is large thoroughfare with lots of businesses, but most of the neighborhood is residential.

Take the family to a community fair after dining out at a local Egyptian restaurant or venture down Southwestern Avenue for a multitude of casual and locally owned dining options. There are also fun restaurants along the northeastern corner of Marquette Park, where you can grab a bite before heading to the movie theater in the nearby Ashburn neighborhood.

Check out the "Fresh Beats & Eats" farmer's market that runs along 63rd Street. Then, take in an outdoor movie in Marquette Park, courtesy of the Chicago Park District.
