Streeterville has undoubtedly one of the best locations among all Chicago neighborhoods. Bordered by Lake Michigan to the east and the Chicago River to the south, Streeterville’s next door neighbors include The Gold Coast on the north and The Magnificent Mile on the west. Wherever you live in the neighborhood, you’re greeted by Chicago’s spectacular urban landscape and are never too far from the city’s storied attractions.
What to love
- Navy Pier
The land where Navy Pier now sits started out as a sandbar augmented by landfill. Jutting out 3,300 feet from the Lake Michigan shoreline, Navy Pier is now one of Chicago’s top attractions featuring shops, restaurants, and exhibits, along with wonderful attractions like Amazing Chicago’s Fun House Maze, The Crystal Gardens, and Chicago Shakespeare Theater. But arguably the most popular attractions in Navy Pier are the exciting rides, particularly the 200 foot high Centennial Wheel where you can get the most stunning views of the city.
- Walkable urban destinations
Streeterville is home to world-class restaurants, nightspots, shops, museums, and other destinations – all within walking distance of high rise condos and residential complexes. Take a stroll down wide sidewalks and head to the John Hancock Tower, where you can wine and dine at the iconic Signature Room on the 95th floor. Shop along The Magnificent Mile, visit The Museum of Contemporary Art, and have a bite of the famous Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza at the original Gino’s East – iconic Chicago destinations just steps away from your front door.
- Parks and beaches
Streetville may be best known for its imposing skyscrapers, but residents also enjoy the luxury of green open spaces and relaxing beaches. The recently opened Bennett Park is a two-acre architectural feat, built atop a parking garage. Just fronting the Museum of Modern Art is Lake Shore Park, which features tennis courts, outdoor gym equipment, and an outdoor track. Milton Lee Olive Park, the largest park in Streeterville, is a 10-acre urban oasis on Lake Michigan with a scenic walking path. Just beside it, Ohio Street Beach offers hours of water and beach fun, especially in the summer.
