Description

Anchored by a beautiful stretch of shoreline to the east and dotted with train stops from two 'L' lines, Lakeview is one of Chicago's liveliest and most accessible neighborhoods. Several distinct areas East Lakeview, Central Lakeview, Boystown and Wrigleyville meld together to form a lakefront community that celebrates diversity and boasts something for every type of visitor.

Hit the bustling commercial districts along Belmont Avenue, Lincoln Avenue, Southport Avenue, Clark Street, Halsted Street and Broadway Street to shop be it for vintage frocks, designer jeans or leather biker gear or live it up with the locals at the seemingly endless options for bars and pubs, and the dozens of celebrated restaurants in between.

Arts and culture come in the form of live music venues, several summer street festivals and a thriving scene for theater, dance and comedy (Belmont Theater District is a stellar collection of nearly 20 independent companies). Nearby parks include Evergreen Park, Wenat Park and Lincoln Park.

Not to be outdone by its extraordinary entertainment landscape, Lakeview makes full use of its slice of Lincoln Park, a 1,200-acre oasis dedicated to the outdoors. Here you will find the scenic Lakefront Trail, a golf course and driving range, a boat harbor, a bird sanctuary, tennis courts and grassy playing fields that are also perfect for picnics or just soaking in the views.

    "I've lived in this neighborhood and moved out because rent was cheaper further north. I'm now making my way back to the area bc I miss everything about it. The festivals, the night life, the restraints. Everything is within a 5 mile radius. Plus public transportation in this area is really good. no need for a car ."

    "Everything is accessible, parking is very tight but most areas can be reached by walking and/or public transportation. This neighborhood has the advantage of downtown living in terms or shops, restaurants and diversity and yet it is quiet, safe and private for family living. Parks and Michigan lake is walking distance."
