ABOUT THE RAVINIA DISTRICT OF HIGHLAND PARK
The Ravinia District is an electric mix of small-scale businesses, popular restaurants, food specialty shops, and high-end personal and professional services. All located within a few walkable blocks, this creative, quaint, friendly, and historic neighborhood offers nearly anything a person might want. The Ravinia District is a lovely location to dine before or after visiting the Ravinia Festival or the Chicago Botanic Garden. The District is located east of Green Bay Road on Roger Williams Avenue in Highland Park.
The Ravinia District's historic roots as a getaway from Chicago for artists and other creative people led to its establishment as an artists' colony, geographically separate as it is from Downtown Highland Park and other more commercial business areas.
