Putting the Chic in Chicago

Self-Guided Tour: Wicker Park

To see the best of Chicago’s neighborhoods with a professional guide and lifelong resident of Chicago, be sure to take a look at all of our Chicago tours.


Board the Blue Line downtown toward O’Hare and ride until the Damen stop. To walk a loop through the neighborhood, we recommend starting with a bite to eat right by the Damen stop then slightly doubling back toward the six-way intersection – see map below for additional detail. With a full belly, you’ll be ready to explore (and burn calories) strolling this historic neighborhood. 

Take a look at the map below for a list of where to go and what to see. Much like the Chicago walking tours we offer, this self-guided tour through Wicker Park takes you to historic and unique locations throughout the neighborhood.
