This shiny new home for the LGBT community opened in 2007 as a LEEDS-certified ecofriendly delight. The Hoover-Leppen Theater stages LGBT-themed productions and doubles as a house of queer-friendly worship on Sundays while the Billie Jean King Recreation Hall beckons sports enthusiasts, but it's the wide array of social services that lures LGBT youth, seniors and minorities from the South and West Sides.
Wrigleyville may be named for the stadium at its center, but the Chicago Cubs aren't the sole draw in this small Chicago neighborhood. Grab some great burgers and see some funny folks perform at Rockit Burger Bar's weekly comedy show or head down the street for a dance party at Smart Bar. If you're a history buff or a fan of offbeat Chicago attractions, you may enjoy a stroll through the nearby Graceland Cemetery. Leave the "Friendly Confines" behind and experience some of the best attractions and things to do in—and around—Wrigleyville.
