Walk in Chicago # 5, Bucktown, Humboldt Park and Paseo Boricua
Walk in Chicago # 5, Bucktown, Humboldt Park and Paseo Boricua, is the 1st of 4 walks that invites you to explore the north of the city outside its center. It is an opportunity to walk in residential neighborhoods, to take a tree-lined pedestrian path, to cross an almost wild park and then to explore Puerto Rican culture. You'll also find a place to eat traditional Chicago hot dogs and another for the deep-dish pizzas, also a specialty of the city.
Finally, it suggests two cozy bars with very reasonable prices to go and listen to either jazz or alternative groups.
The walk is 3 miles long and it will take you between 90 minutes and 4 hours to complete depending on what you decide to do along the way.
For less than the price of a coffee, you’ll get a 6 pages pdf with a clickable map showing you the way, a list of highlights, steps by steps instructions for your walk, info about unusual places to visit, location of restrooms and places to sit, and 8 photos taken along the way.
