This is a hidden jem and you don't even feel like you are in the city anymore. It's kind of hard to find if you don't know where you are going. (Near the parking lot entrance of the zoo on Fullerton)
This lovely hidden gem is just north of the Lincoln Park Zoo and is easily missed if you're not looking for it. It’s a beautiful romantic place popular for wedding photos.
Walk the trail around the lily pool hidden just North of downtown in the shadow of the gold coast. One of the most beautiful urban gardens in the city.
A wonderful oasis in Chicago, and it almost didn't exist. There really is some cool history behind beautiful park, ending with the architect, Alfred Caldwell, having to cash in his $5000 life insurance policy just to buy the plants to make this place a reality. A true hidden gem, most people don't…

“This is a really beautiful old building. Lots of history. Lots to see and hear.,An excellent reminder of the old style of Chicago. Worthy of a second visit.”

“It's easy to overlook this restaurant, since it is just off of Randolph's restaurant row and on an obscure side street. Anyway, it's the real deal, with all the classic French comfort foods, impeccably prepared. It's really the small details that make the difference: the warm, crusty French bread and sweet butter served before you even order; the exactly correct Dijon mustard that accompanies the country-style house-made terrine of pork pate; the croutons on your Salad Lyonnaise that have obviously just been toasted; the perfect crust of gruyere on the French onion soup; and of course the right ambiance and soundtrack to accompany a classic French bistro meal. Go on Tuesday night!”
