What to love
- Chicago’s largest park
Living in Lincoln Park, you can claim its 1,200-acre namesake park as your front yard. The neighborhood has the best access to some of the park’s top attractions, including the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, which has been designated a National Historic Landmark; the exciting Lincoln Park Zoo; and the magnificent gardens of Lincoln Park Conservatory. When the weather gets hot, you can head to North Avenue Beach, which features a 22,000 square foot beach house with the best views of the water, as well as chess tables, watersport gear rentals, and beach concierge services.
- Rich cultural scene
Lincoln Park features historic buildings and landmarks, theaters and live performance venues, museums, and other cultural attractions. As the home of DePaul University, residents are treated to university events that are open to the public, including theater and musical productions, art exhibits, and more. Two significant museums – the Chicago History Museum and the Peggy Notebart Nature Museum – are found at the park next door. For a night of improv, head to the legendary Second City, and for contemporary, thought provoking plays, watch The Steppenwolf Theatre Company productions. If you’re a fan of Chicago blues music, the iconic Kingtson Mines is the place to go.

The Armitage-Halstead Hub is a unique shopping destination where you’ll find exclusive brands of high end apparel, gifts, accessories, and other retail finds, as well as numerous restaurants housed in historic Victorian-era homes and buildings. Other major retail destinations in Lincoln Park include the Lakefront-Clark Hub and the North-Clybourne Hub.
