Lincoln Park is known for its bustling nightlife, tree-lined streets, boutique shops, and some of the oldest restaurants frequented by native Chicagoans.
The streets are lined with mansions, restored Victorian flats, modern town homes, and brand new condominiums. Lincoln Park is north of downtown, making it less frequented by tourists and sprinkled with some of Chicago's oldest gems, including restaurants, taverns, music lounges, and quaint coffee shops.
With its pubs, summer street fairs, theater, bike trails, and historic buildings, Lincoln Park has entertainment options for everyone. Lincoln Park is also home to some of Chicago’s most recognized artistic spots, including blues clubs and a music scene that features anything from live reggae to Opera, as well as a strong performing and visual local art community. Some nearby attractions include the Lincoln Park Zoo, Fullerton Beach, DePaul University, and art house movie and improv theaters.
The brown, red, and purple line CTA L trains, which go as far north as the northeast suburbs and south through the downtown area, all run through Lincoln Park. Lakeshore Drive is minutes away for convenient commuting.
