Due to its close proximity to the lake and downtown, Old Town is a neighborhood destination. Victorian-era buildings, brick alleyways and narrow, tree-lined streets are charming backdrops to a busy main strip that runs along Wells Street between North Avenue and Division Street. For entertainment, comedy takes center stage with The Second City and Zanies Comedy Club providing the laughs. Shopping is quite eclectic and you can pick up specialty spice blends, imported olive oils, chunks of fudge, rare wines and premium cigars all in one single spree down Wells. Family-owned restaurants are fixtures of the neighborhood and the variety runs deep: barbeque ribs, sushi, steak frites, pasta and pizza are all noteworthy. You can continue to soak up area history at one of the more seasoned taverns, though new bars and boutiques keep Old Town young.
