Things to Do In Chicago: Spend A Day in Pilsen

A vibrant neighborhood in Chicago full of history and culture, Pilsen is a great area to explore – whether you have the weekend, or just one day!

One of the first stops you should make is to the National Museum of Mexican Art. Here, you can see the beauty of Mexican culture unfold in rich stories told through art.

In addition to the awe-inspiring exhibits, the museum occasionally has guest appearances and short theatrical productions for children and adults alike. The museum is also great for a first date! Be sure to call ahead to find out about special events and the daily program schedule.

After you work up an appetite, head right around the corner to Diez y Ocho. The staff are on my list of places with good customer service and an excellent menu selection. There is a beautiful upstairs loft available for throwing private events. Nice owners, great food, good service keeps me going back for more!
