One of the most beautiful things about the Chicago metro area is the diversity of its neighborhoods and the suburbs. From the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture in Oak Park to the authentic global cuisine and antique shops in Andersonville to upscale boutiques on the picturesque streets of Winnetka — there’s so much to explore! Plus, there are tons of other spots within a short drive that have plenty to see, do and eat.
Want to give back to Chicago and its diverse neighborhoods? Get involved with the Peterson Garden Project, a community garden initiative that donates 10 percent of crops to local food pantries.
