Written By: Jessie White

If you have ever visited the Windy City you have almost certainly caught wind of a neighborhood slightly north of downtown called Lincoln Park. Lincoln Park is a vibrant neighborhood consisting of the diverse, informative and most importantly free Lincoln Park Zoo, the famous Salt n’ Pepper Diner, and the home of Depaul University. With the warmer breezes blowing in the city is finally coming out of hibernation and Lincoln Park has bloomed with amazing opportunities popping up weekly! Throughout this past brutal winter, Chicagoans have patiently anticipated the arrival or warmer weather and of course, the yearly Lincoln Park Wine Festival.
