Tag - Fulton Market District

The weather is cooler, but the #ChicagoLeafPeeping is prime. As autumn wraps the city in reds and golds, it's the perfect time to check out the harvest festivals and Oktoberfests that are popping up around town. As we cruise into a new month, take a moment to check out the biggest events happening in October, and make some time for these weekend picks (that is, if you don't stay out too late at these bars that keep the party going past last call). 

Fulton Market District

Fulton Market District in the West Loop is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Chicago, and it probably has something to do with the influence of street art both outside and inside some of this small neighborhood's beloved establishments. If you're looking for a break from normal, and hungry for some of the city's most delicious gourmet food, look no further than Fulton Market. Its visibility may have grown some after serving as the location for the 30th season of Real World, but the area was trend setting well before the show moved in. (Although, their house was really cool.) There are so many things to check out, you could easily spend a day getting a taste of the neighborhood. Here's my ideal Fulton Market budget itinerary.
