Immerse Yourself in Cultural Experiences in Chicago

Chicago's Chinatown offers one of the best cultural experiences in Chicago.

Are you a travel enthusiast looking to broaden your horizons? If so, feed your wanderlust this winter and enjoy amazing cultural experiences in Chicago. From Irish brews to Mexicana, the Windy City offers something for everyone.


Chicago’s Chinatown is the second-largest in the country and one you’ll never tire of visiting. The restaurants, retail shops, and bakeries are undeniably the most popular attractions here. We recommend Qing Xiang Yuan for the best dumplings in town. If you’re here for the events, you won’t want to miss the Chamber of Commerce’s winter lineup:

  • Chinatown’s Annual Gala: This charity event brings together influential Chinese and American business leaders from all over the state and the Chicago metropolitan area.
  • The 2020 Year of the Rat Lunar New Year Dinner: This year’s dinner will be held at the Cai Restaurant. So, get your tickets here before they run out.
  • Chinese New Year concert (January 25th) at the Chicago Public Library (Chinatown branch): The concert will feature the Lincolnwood Chamber Orchestra and the Dong Fang Performing Arts Choir.

Irish Pubs

Take the opportunity to visit an Irish pub in Chicago, if you can. These popular pubs welcome people from all walks of life. You’ll undoubtedly discover that Irish-Americans are a friendly bunch and always in the mood for a conversation. Most importantly, you’ll experience a sense of belonging you won’t find anywhere else.

One of our favorite pubs in Chicago is the Fado Irish Pub. It offers unique brews and an intriguing blend of conventional “pub grub” and internationally flavored dishes. If you’re looking for a cosmopolitan dining experience, this pub is your best bet.

Mexican Food & Culture

Mexican culture is certainly alive and well in Chicago. So, if you’re in the area this winter, make your way to 26th Street, which is the epicenter of Mexican culture. You’ll find the best Mexican restaurants in Chicago here, such as Taquerias Atotonilco, Bar Takito, and Uncle Julio’s. The latter features made-from-scratch fajitas that’ll have you returning again and again.
