The Southwest Side of Chicago is not a significant tourist attraction, but does have some interest as home to Chicago's "Black Belt," large Mexican neighborhoods, and Midway Airport.

  • The old stockyards (McKinley Park, New City) — the site of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle now has a large Mexican population
  • Chicago's Black Belt (Englewood, Marquette Park, Auburn-Gresham, Ashburn, Washington Heights, Greater Grand Crossing) — A huge urban residential area, home to much of Chicago's African American population, with an important Civil Rights history
  • Midway Area (Brighton Park, Garfield Ridge, Clearing, Archer Heights, West Elsdon, West Lawn) — the area surrounding Midway Airport is ethnically diverse, home to large Polish and Mexican communities
