Once the summer camp for the Potawatomi tribe, and then the farmlands of Phillip Rogers and his son-in-law, Patrick Touhy, Rogers Park has a long history that mirrors much of Chicago’s. From outpost to thriving community, Rogers Park has a great deal to offer visitors and residents in the form of culture, dining and waterfront access to Lake Michigan.
With Loyola University running along the south border, and Northwestern University sitting in Rogers Park’s neighbor to the north, Evanston, the community hosts a larger-than-average population of residents with higher degrees and intellectual curiosity. And what goes better with intellectual curiosity than a hot cup of coffee and plush seating? Fortunately, Rogers Park has a series of fantastic coffee shops for people who enjoy waxing poetic with the scent of arabica beans in the air!
For foodies, Rogers Park taps into Devon Street, which offers some of Chicago’s best Indian food restaurants. Additionally, more and more unique restaurants are popping up in the area, providing a great selection of dining options (check the tab to the right for some recommendations).
For housing options, Rogers Park real estate has a much lower profile in terms of building height. Along the waterfront you will find a lot of two- and three-flats, while interior housing tends to lean more towards the classic Chicago bungalow.
Along with a variety of housing options comes a variety of commuter options, with easy access to downtown Chicago and Evanston by way of the Metra, CTA and Lake Shore Drive!
