What people are saying:

We were lucky to meet the Greek festival there when we were in town. Wow, it was so interesting! The smells just make you dizzy. The ethnic shops, restaurants, coffee shops, specialty shops ...... are worth seeing. Even if nothing special I would recommend this short stop. Because it's right on the MRT site.

Additional Information

Introduction

The history of Greektown runs way back. Greek immigrants first started coming to the area in the 1840's. Simple food peddlers evolved into restaurant owners, and began a Greek community that has become an integral part of Chicago's history. Greektown offers a look into a rich Greek culture that is filled with tradition. From restaurants to shops, to traditional Greek temples, you can see the love the residents have for their country and its lifestyle. Greektown celebrates Greek Independence Day in a parade, and also boasts the Taste of Greece annually.
