Logan Square is a diverse, family-friendly neighborhood with a growing number of restaurants, nightlife and stores, and so much green you'll forget you're in the city. Wide, landscaped boulevards are characteristic of Logan Square – remnants of the past that continue to define the area today. Off the boulevards are a hodgepodge of residences that cover every housing preference, from old mansions to contemporary condominiums. Local eateries and cafés are favorites among Logan Square inhabitants who will find an extensive selection of dining options in all directions. A handful of bars are thrown into the mix, as are theaters and other entertainment venues. Logan Square also offers a decent assortment of retail outlets that embrace both national name brands and those of the homegrown variety. During certain months of the year Logan Square is home to one of Chicago's many farmers' markets, and for anyone who wants to skip out on the Taste of Chicago, you can come to the Taste of Logan Square for a downsized version of the massive food festival.
