Wicker Park, Chicago

“Wicker Park is a place near downtown that is known for its restaurants and bar scene.” This area is full of music, fashion, and nightlife, which makes it a great place for a group of friends to visit!

Noted as one of “America’s Best Hipster Neighborhoods,” Forbes said that “The Midwest Mecca of hipsterdom started attracting artists and young adults in the late 1980s. Nestled around a park, this artists’ community is known for its galleries, music venues, boutiques and food options. It’s also home to a smattering of Victorian mansions built by wealthy 19th century merchants and beer brewers.”

Castro, San Francisco

“First settled as Eureka Valley, the Castro District took on the name of its busiest street as people moved out of the city into the suburbs in the mid 20th century.”

According to SFGate, “The Castro is bustling all day long, but at night it really comes alive, as the bars from the Mint to the Midnight Sun fill up and the Castro Theatre’s neon marquee lights up the main drag.”

Late 19th-century Victorian rowhouses (many of them now converted condos) are the centerpiece of the neighborhood with a cadre of interior design shops, unique boutiques and hipster haven restaurants radiating outward.
