Chicago, Illinois


Stretching across Chicago's southeast landscape, Douglas is a well-established part of Chicago South Side. One of the city's most treasured beaches -- 31st St Beach -- sits along the neighborhood's eastern edge, while the abundance of green spaces make it a picturesque place to call home. Minutes from downtown but in the heart of one of the city's most dynamic neighborhoods, Douglas residents enjoy the attractions of city life while having a quaint, residential pocket to call their own.

Homes in Douglas

Where To Live

Douglas has many condos and large apartment complexes that offer the same comforts as other Chicago neighborhoods but at more budget-friendly prices. Recent revitalization efforts in the area, particularly within "the Gap" in the northern zone of the neighborhood, have created a number of affordable apartment and condo options. In the southern zone of the neighborhood, many residents choose to settle near 47th street, the hub of the pocket district known as Grand Boulevard.

Around Douglas

Where To Eat

In the past, Douglas has traditionally been populated by fast food outlets offering quick and greasy treats to go. While these stands still provide some tasty comfort for peckish residents, the area has recently seen growth in sit-down restaurants with more premium billing, creating a more diverse neighborhood menu of more slowly prepared classics in southern, creole, and barbecue stylings.

Friday Night Fun

Take a stroll down to 47th street to see what Grand Boulevard has to offer. This neighborhood used to be well-known as a jazz capital, and while some of the older clubs have closed, there are still several places to grab a drink and listen to the sweet sounds of a saxophone. This area also has a worthwhile standup comedy scene for those that prefer jokes over jazz.

The Perfect Sunday

Get lost in Washington Park, a natural oasis that stretches across the southern border of the neighborhood. With plenty of room to roam, it's easy to spend an afternoon with the family tossing around a football, having a picnic, or just taking in the natural scenery. Afterwards, stop by one of the local exhibitions or storefronts to browse through some art and literature, created by Chicago artists and authors and heavily influenced by the neighborhood's cultural heartbeat.
