For four years, the third largest city (with arguably the best food scene in the country) has been at our feet, just south of Northwestern University’s home base of Evanston, Illinois. We’re lucky, we know. The El, the Metra and a series of buses and shuttles can get us just about anywhere in the city. We have made it a priority to get out and about in the wonderfully diverse city, and our senior year of college it’s especially been a priority. We love Chi-town, and we’re nowhere near done exploring. But for now, learn about some of our favorite spots.
