Old Town Neighborhood Guide

Old Town is a lively pocket of adored local dining dens and awning-covered specialty shops centered about the quaint, storefront-lined North Wells Street corridor. Reminiscent of a staged Norman Rockwell scene, this endearing Chicagoneighborhood is garlanded with windowsill flower planters, traditional standing lampposts, ornate Wells Street entrance gates, and shadowed pedestrian alleys between the handsome 19th century facades, aesthetically guarded by aged wrought iron and pruned overgrowth from garden patios. Old Town’s dated setting is exposed for its twenty-first century reality by the swift crowds of urbanites, ducking in and out of paint-layered doors, and the minority of redeveloped edifices with sleek new exteriors and chic, big city influences. Beyond the well-visited dining and entertainment district, Old Town is a lovely arrangement of quiet residential blocks with expensive vintage real estate and top-ranking elementary schools boasting multilingual and accelerated programs.
