Sure, Chicago invented the zipper and Twinkie, but the city’s true legacy is a strange softball game invented here almost a century ago. Aptly named, 16-Inch Softball uses the same rules as normal softball, but with shorter games, a bigger, squishier ball and no gloves or mitts on the fielders. Wicker Park is a prime place to see this unique sport in action.

And for travelers suffering withdrawal from the pooch left at home, Wicker Park’s dog park is a great way to get in some quality canine time.
