They say Pilsen is the next big thing. Who is “they,” you ask? Well, everyone really, but mainly the hipsters (that is, the really hip hipsters—the ones looking to remain just a bit on the fringes, the “authentic hip,” if you will). But no matter how you identify, when you arrive in Pilsen, you’ll know it, and you’ll have a good time while you’re there. The colorful murals, the smell of carnitas and, in summer, the paletas man making the rounds through this vibrant Southwest side neighborhood are telltale signs. Exploring is as easy as a trip on the Pink Line. So refill your Ventra card, hop on the El, fill up on the best Mexican food in Chicago and just generally have a good time.
