Old Town is a historic part of downtown Chicago that’s largely defined by its history and captivating architecture. Believe it or not, some of the city’s oldest Victorian-era buildings are found here in Old Town, including St. Michael's Church, which held its ground and survived the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. But along with that, Old Town is also highly praised for its almost small town-like ambiance, especially along Wells Street, which is loaded with charming little boutique shops and plenty of bars, restaurants, and cafes that help keep this part of Chicago quite lively on any given day or night of the week.
