The Villa is a small but vibrant residential neighborhood founded in 1907 and located in Northwest Chicago. The region has been designated a historic landmark district and this tight-knit community boasts the longest running community association in Chicago. The association is very active, providing walking tours of the neighborhood to exhibit its architectural treasures, community beautification programs, and organizing community events at various times of the year. Most of the area is residential, however, Pulaski Road has many restaurants, shops, and services that residents can easily access on foot, making this a highly walkable community.
If you venture out into The Villa on foot with your furry family member, be aware that you and your dog can be subject to 'The Windy City' weather which can be variable with cold temperatures and snow in the winter, rainy springs, and hot, humid summers. Be prepared for weather conditions and dress appropriately for the seasonal weather.
