Woodlawn is one of seventy-seven official community areas in Chicago, located on the city’s southside on the shores of Lake Michigan.
The DuSable Museum of African American History is an important piece of Woodlawn culture that sits at the heart of the area’s identity. Located within Washington Park, just north of Woodlawn, the museum features exhibitions containing artefacts, photos and anecdotes from African American history in the Windy City.
Close to Woodlawn is The Museum of Science and Industry, one of Chicago’s most esteemed attractions. Home to a range of informative exhibits geared toward a family experience, the crown jewel of the museum is perhaps the Apollo 8 spacecraft, which attracts space enthusiasts from across the city and Illinois state.
Throughout the area, from East 60th street to East 67th street, Floom’s Woodlawn flower delivery applies to the entire community.
