Lucky for you, you get to eat and listen to historical happenings on this walking food tour of the Noble Square and Wicker park neighborhoods. Studied by sociologists around the world for its rapid transformation in the ’80s and ’90s, the Wicker Park neighborhood had previously been home to gang bangers, drug addicts and prostitutes.

Today, it is often ranked in lists of “Coolest Neighborhoods” in America, and you get to learn all about why from your expert guide, who will not only tell you all about the neighborhoods’ histories, but will take you to the best eats around.
