Homes for Sale

Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.

Where to Live

The East Side is on the outskirts of Chicago, which means its residents have more room to spread out. That's why the majority of the neighborhood features the city's famous bungalow-style, single-family homes. Of course, not everything boasts this historic architectural style. You can also find newer builds from the 1980s and later, though most of these homes stand on the southeast side of the neighborhood.

Where to Eat

As you’d expect in any big-city neighborhood, the East Side has plenty of variety within its culinary scene. The biggest player, though, is its authentic Mexican food, which may have something to do with the neighborhood's large population of people from this Latin American country. Check out 106th Street and Ewing Avenue to find Italian, pizza and classic American fare, too.

What You'll See

East Side's wealth of residential, single-family homes means you might see a bit less activity than a neighborhood where residents walk or catch public transit everywhere. There is, however, lots of natural beauty to take in. Bikers pedal along the lakeshore paths and hikers traipse through Eggers Woods, a nature preserve in the area.

Friday Night Fun

The East Side will be notably quieter than downtown on any weekend evening, but the area's not completely vacant, either. You'll find plenty of neighborhood dives and pubs, as well as spaces where jazz musicians pluck strings and tickle the keys. If you're in the mood for a drive, you could also spend a Friday night at one of Indiana's nearby casinos.

The Perfect Sunday

A sunny Sunday will probably draw you to Eggers Grove Forest Preserve, referred to by the locals simply as "Eggers Woods." In a metropolis like Chicago, its pristine trees and glistening wetlands seem like a world away. Even sunnier Sundays might bring you to Calumet Beach instead, the neighborhood's own sandy stretch along the lakeshore. Its distance from the city means it's less crowded than the North Avenue Beaches of the world.
