WHAT TO EXPECT
Home to a diverse assortment of devoted residents and businesses.
An artisanal flair and one-of-a-kind charm.
Locals will frequent many independently owned specialty shops. Expect long lines at popular brunch spots, but don't expect crazy crowds of bar-hoppers.
A vibrant example of a lovely urban neighborhood.
Cozy diners, craft brew emporiums, tried-and-true hole-in-the-walls, and some of the city's best comfort food spots line Clark Street's restaurant strip.
A quiet pocket within a big, bustling city.
Make your way to M. Henry for some of the best brunch on the North Side, then take a walk through the commercial district in search of unusual shopping finds. Visit Women & Children First, the city's most well-known feminist bookstore, or sample authentic Swedish cuisine at one of the many nearby bakeries.
Affordable walk-ups and high-rise condos with lake views.
The neighborhood has long been known for its affordability, but as word spread about Andersonville's many charms, prices have risen as buyers transform the neighborhood's three-flats into luxurious single-family homes.
YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH
Charming backdrops and close proximity to the lakefront.
Simply meandering the streets enroute to the nearby lake can be a treat for Andersonville residents and visitors. Lively but quiet at night.
Andersonville is served by the Berwyn and Bryn Mawr stops on the CTA's Red Line, which provides an easy commute to the Loop. Clark Street, Foster Avenue, Broadway Street, and Ashland Avenue are among the CTA bus lines that serve the neighborhood. For a more adventurous commute, the neighborhood has several Divvy stations, is close to the Ravenswood Metra station, and has access to the Lakefront bike trail. The area's traffic is generally light, even along Clark Street, but it can become congested during rush hour.
This annual festival brings together enthusiastic Chicagoans for a weekend of tangy international food, energetic entertainment, exclusive artisans and vendors, and a family-friendly array of interactive activities.

Midsommarfest, which arose from Andersonville's Swedish heritage, will transport you back to old-world Swedish traditions. You can dance around the Maypole and sample flavorful international cuisine without needing a passport! In addition, family-friendly activities will allow children of all ages to enjoy a pet parade and face painting, all while taking in the sights of a beautiful June weekend!
