Get to know Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park is the neighborhood to the immediate west of its namesake green space, which happens to be Chicago’s largest park. Perhaps because of the natural and cultural amenities of the park (and the lake and beaches just beyond it), Lincoln Park has become one of Chicago’s most desirable neighborhoods. There are plenty of wealthy residents, including some who have turned multi-family dwellings into Chicago chateaux, but the neighborhood is also filled with lovely and spacious single-family homes for people who like living with downtown just on the other side of their picket fences. The shopping is excellent, with charming boutiques in row houses lining several of the streets. The dining in Lincoln Park rivals any neighborhood in the country and runs the gamut from famous hot dog emporia to a Michelin 3-star. The neighborhood is a walker’s and biker’s dream and even ranks high on Chicago’s stellar public transit scale.

Living in Chicago

There may be people who live in Chicago who do not love Chicago, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find one of them. From the shores of Lake Michigan to the sprawling suburbs, Chicago is a global metropolis that still manages to be Midwestern friendly. The city has some 600 parks, and 18.5 miles of trail along the shore of the lake and another lining the rivers of downtown. The food is among the best and most varied in the world. Museums and performance venues abound, and public art fills green space and public squares. Public transportation is easy, as is reaching either U.S. coast in half a day. Even in the midst of its notoriously frigid winters, you won’t find a warmer city to call home.
