Giddings Plaza, Lincoln Square

A German-American enclave that has retained much of its heritage (not to mention some great German restaurants), Lincoln Square is a neighborhood where you can still tap into the history and culture of the community. Nearby, Ravenswood is equally grounded in its past, thanks to an abundance of historic buildings, many of which have been repurposed. Each area hosts its own collection of summer festivals, attractions, bars and more great things to do. Get acquainted with Lincoln Square and Ravenswoord with the help of our neighborhood guide.
