About Chicago, IL (Lakeview)
Lakeview is one of the 77 community areas of Chicago, located on the city’s North Side and is 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. Wrigleyville is the neighborhood that sits in the shadows of historic Wrigley Field, which is the 2nd oldest stadium in baseball and is home of the Chicago Cubs.
Hit the bustling commercial districts along Belmont Avenue, Lincoln Avenue, Southport Avenue, Clark Street, Halsted Street and Broadway Street to shop – or live it up with the locals at the seemingly endless option 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).
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 waves.
