Chicago is becoming big music fest central. We know you’ve heard of Pitchfork and Lallapalooza, but we’d like to introduce you to a new concert series, NorthCoast Music Festival. This is a celebratory concoction of hip hop, electronic, dance and indy music occuring at Union Park Labor Day Weekend, which is just a quick train ride from our hostel. Check this fest out, musicians like De La Soul, Chemical Brothers, Lupe Fiasco, Moby, and Nas will be performing and you have the option of purchasing a 1 day pass for $35 or a 3 day pass for $75. Just because summer ends in September, doesn’t mean Chicago events cease as well….
Dear Traveler, we will let you in on a little secret. Part of why we are the best hostel in Chicago is because of our beautiful neighborhood, Lincoln Park. In fact, our neighborhood is better than downtown in so many ways. Come see why we were voted the 5th best hostel in the U.S. for the month of May!
Some good things only happen once a year, and its time to experience this year’s Bike The Drive. This event let’s you & a bicycle take over historic Lake Shore Drive as you bike the famous lakefront road without a car in sight. So on May 30th, grab a bike, a helmet, and get ready for a memorable ride.
Chicago Getaway Hostel is the best hostel in Chicago! Here are ten reasons why:
- Location – Lincoln Park is Chicago’s best location to really get to know Chicago. Sure, there are other hostels in the Loop, but have you ever been in the Loop after dark? There is nothing to do! Lincoln Park is where you want to be. We’re close to tons of bars, clubs, restaurants, music venues, theaters, Lincoln Park Zoo, the best beach in Chicago, and the lakefront bike path. Read more
