With the recent change in weather and the dawn of Spring, it’s the time of year we find more people out of their homes enjoying what Chicago has to offer. It’s also the perfect time of year to explore Chicago’s different neighborhoods on foot. Walking around a particular area gives you a close up view of the unique culture in the neighborhood. It gives you a chance to experience new outdoor gardens, cafes or festivals which are missed during those winter months.
If you are thinking of buying a home or condo in Chicago you should take part in the many different walking events that are sponsored by the local chambers of commerce or various other community groups such as the Andersonville Wine Walk where you can sample over 60 wines in over 20 area retail shops.
These events highlight hidden gems which may include a great local eatery that serves a particular cuisine unique to that neighborhood, an exclusive boutique that has its own sense of style or a hidden park unlike major attractions in Chicago such as Millennium Park.
As a home owner you participate in the fabric of the community and give prospective buyers the chance to participate as a local, offering an insider’s view of the area’s culture and specialties.
