It’s been over a decade since the 2005 World Series win, but nothing seems to rattle the loyalty of Chicago White Sox fans. Okay, maybe they’re more likely to watch games on TV than in person. And maybe 2018’s going to be a(nother) rebuilding year. But the team has a lot of exciting young talent, and still more promising prospects who could get called up this year. Whether you’re at Guaranteed Rate Field or hanging at a bar in Bridgeport (or even on the North Side), we’ve got all the information you need. Grab a beer and a hot dog and enjoy South Side baseball all summer long.

Located directly south of Chicago's Chinatown, Bridgeport is a diverse neighborhood that offers an equally varied selection of attractions. The area hosts a vibrant local art scene, including facilities like the Bridgeport Art Center and the Zhou B Art Center which house studios as well as art galleries. Visitors to Bridgeport can also enjoy the wetlands and scenic views of Palmisano Park, which is built around an old limestone quarry.

Where to shop in Bridgeport

The Magnificent Mile, Bucktown, Lincoln Park—these are the neighborhoods you go to when you've got cash to burn, but Chicagoans don't typically venture to the South Side for a day of shopping. Although Bridgeport might be off the beaten path, don't write it off just yet. While it's not Michigan Avenue (we like it that way) and will always be known as the land of the White Sox, this neighborhood boasts a small, eclectic shopping scene that is definitely worth the trip.

Bridgeport residents tell us their favorite neighborhood spots

Bridgeport is a community in the truest sense of the word, the kind of place where locals can walk into a bar and run into more than one of their neighbors. Frankly, we're a little bit jealous, so we reached out to area business owners, chefs and musicians to learn about their favorite places, from cozy coffee shops to saucy barbecue joints. Even if you don't call Bridgeport your home, you'll be able to spend a day pretending that you're a resident at these beloved restaurants, bars and parks. RECOMMENDED: Explore more of Bridgeport
