Chicago's West Side neighborhood of Lawndale is full of history. Once a hub for Eastern Europeans, the area eventually became a center for the Civil Rights Movement when Martin Luther King Jr. lived there in 1966 while campaigning against housing discrimination. Today, the neighborhood is home to plenty of great restaurants, one of the best breweries in the city and one of the city's biggest music festivals, Riot Fest. Head to the beautiful West Side neighborhood and enjoy all of the culture and fun it has to offer. Here's the best of the neighborhood.
