Take in the deep-rooted history of Chinese Americans with your
family in this ethnic neighborhood. This 10-square-block area is
rich with ancient culture, restaurants and tiny gift shops stocked
with products from the Far East. Navigating strollers in and out of
stores can be tricky. Get perspective about Chinese immigrants'
journeys to the United States through the Chinatown Mural, located
in the Chinatown square. Family dining options abound--try the
Phoenix Restaurant (2131 S. Archer Ave.). Or check out Evergreen
Restaurant (2411 S. Wentworth Ave.), Three Happiness Original
Restaurant (209 W. Cermak Road), Seven Treasures (2312 S. Wentworth
Ave.) and Emperor's Choice (2238 S. Wentworth Ave.). Satisfy a
sweet tooth at Feida Bakery (2228 S. Wentworth Ave.). Another way
to take in the neighborhood is to visit the Ping Tom Memorial Park
(300 W. 19th St.). The park, which includes a playground, is along
the Chicago River and perfect place for a picnic.
