Oak Park, Illinois, United States

The history, culture, diversity, and variety of the many things to do! Plus, an added bonus with having Forest Park only a few blocks away with many more shops, dining and activities to explore! Rated the coolest suburb in Chicago by Thrillist and here is what they had to say:

"Oak Park is rich with history and culture few suburbs -- of any city -- can match. Tour the home and studio where Frank Lloyd Wright spent much of his early career and then check out all the spectacular homes he built his neighbors up and down the street. Not far from there you'll find Ernest Hemingway's childhood home and museum. But what if you don't like history and culture? Fear not, you can still distract yourself browsing the cheese display at Marion Street Market (now closed) before sitting down to some lamb sliders and chicken-fried mussels, downing margaritas (or rare anejos) and cochinita pibil on Maya Del Sol's sunny patio, or housing free popcorn while you ponder the 36 taps at Poor Phil's. Speaking of beer, Kinslahger is a new lager-centric brewery to keep an eye on. Throw in the fact that Oak Park is connected to the CTA and a shorter trip to Downtown Chicago than some of the far reaches of actual Chicago (pretty much due west of Downtown), and life is good".
