Your apartment at Oak Park Place is less than five minutes from your next Chicago adventure! Walk over to the Green Line station at Harlem and Lake and take a journey to historic landmarks and exciting events!

Time Travel Through Historic Oak Park

The first site on our itinerary is the Oak Park River Forest Museum. Located near the Austin Green Line station, the Oak Park River Forest Museum is only a five-minute ride from home.

Take a walk on the wild side when you visit the literary exhibit to explore the career of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Oak Park native and the creator of Tarzan. Swing by for monthly events, including the annual Museum Gala, the Holiday Open House in December and many more!

Go Green at the Garfield Park Conservatory

Hop back on the platform and ride the train to Conservatory-Central Park Drive. Open since 1908, the Garfield Park Conservatory is a vibrant piece of history. With a two-acre greenhouse and ten acres of inspiring outdoor gardens, the Garfield Park Conservatory is one of the largest conservatories in the United States.

Volunteer at the gardens and become a part of history. Relax your mind and body with free outdoor yoga on Saturday mornings. Host an event at Horticulture Hall and leave your friends green with envy—the possibilities are as endless as the scenery!

Sample Global Cuisine without Breaking the Bank

The thirst for adventure is hard to quench but stop at Morgan for a worthy endeavor. The new McDonald’s Global Menu Restaurant is a fresh approach to global cuisine.

Newly opened in June of 2019, this unique establishment has an array of menu items from countries around the world. Recent additions to the menu include items from Cyrus, Germany, France and the Netherlands. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a caramel-dipped cone or savor something savory and grab a 1955 burger to go. The menu is rotated frequently so your taste buds will never get bored!

Seize the Night with an Evening of Entertainment

End your evening at State/Lake, just steps away from the Chicago Theater. Built in 1921, the Chicago Theater hosts a variety of concerts, comedy shows, and events.

Named a Chicago Landmark in 1983, this event space is here to stay. Do not let the age of this theater fool you—some of the world’s top performers find their way to center stage. Listen to Elvis Costello, laugh with Chris Tucker and lose yourself in the magic of Cirque du Soleil.
