Things to do in Little Village

“Little Mexico” is more of an accurate name for Chicago’s Little Village community. The best Mexican food in the Chicagoland area can be found here. Of course, music is also celebrated here. More than anything, Little Village is a shopping and cultural destination. You don’t need to spend hours on end here to fully enjoy it and spot at each spot sporadically.

Dulcelandia

You’ll know this warehouse-sized candy store by its several pinatas hanging outside. Every variety of Mexican-made candy is here at this sugarland market. They even have spicy candies. The store itself is pretty too with so many colors –one might say it’s fiesta-themed. You can fill up a bag of all your favorites as a nice souvenir treat.
