Get Your Fall Fix at These Chicago Autumn Attractions
Autumn in Chicago is one of the best times to be alive. Bundle up in your classy warm outerwear and feel the warm temperature turn invigorating and brisk around OneEleven. It’s a whole different world when the seasons change in the Second City. Luckily, the end of summer doesn’t shut Chicagoans in! Here are some Chicago autumn attractions to help get your fall fix!
This tasty Chicago bakery started in 1922 when Joseph Dinkel arrived in America to step up the bakery game in the old German neighborhoods of Lincoln Park. Go to Dinkel’s Bakery for seasonal treats. Today, you can grab one of their famous cider doughnuts and a hot chocolate. Then go explore Lincoln Avenue. It is one of the most quaint streets in the city, and it offers great boutiques and specialty stores for early holiday shopping!
The tiny road off Cicero and Foster looks unassuming, but it’s actually the gateway to one of Chicago’s free forest preserves. Explore LaBaugh Woods to find a natural forest with walking trails and plenty of beautiful scenery. It flanks a small branch of the Chicago River. Golden leaves grace the treetops, and a wonderland of prairie flora and fauna offers up its best show. Look for families of deer and a former railway bridge covered in impressive street art.
Sporting upcycled decor and serving up classic American comfort food, Farmhouse Chicago has been wowing Chicagoans since 2011. Obtaining most of their ingredients from their Wisconsin farm, Brown Dog, they specialize in the most sustainable practices. So cozy up to the table with some pierogis, a beautifully crafted and cleverly named cocktail, and relish in autumn.
Old Town Garden
Just because summer’s gone and all the leaves are falling doesn’t mean you have to give up entirely on fresh greenery. In their closing months, Old Town Garden offers some great deals and exotic plants to take home before they wither. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, walking around the open-air lot is a lot of fun.
These Chicago autumn attractions are just some of the attractions you can look forward to when you call OneEleven home. You can also go to Art on theMART for a seasonal, one-of-a-kind art display. If you are looking for an apartment near these great attractions, please contact us.
