Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park, perhaps most well known for it's 1,208 acre park running along it's eastern border of the lake, boasts beautiful, tree-lined streets, brownstone row houses, brick 3-flats, and thriving business corridors.  Armitage Avenue is lined with independent boutiques and high-end retailers; Clark Street is packed with casual cafes, ethnic restaurants and sweet shops that spill out onto the sidewalks during warm weather; and Lincoln Avenue buzzes all night with bars and taverns that cater to the young college crowd from the nearby DePaul University campus. In addition to shopping and dining, Lincoln Park is a diverse arts and entertainment destination as well with a plethora of museums, top theaters and live music clubs to pick from.

Circling back to the famed Lincoln Park, from which this north side neighborhood derives it's name, visitors can enjoy the greenery, the free Lincoln Park Zoo, and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, Walk & Conservatory.  Access to the lakefront trail for jogging or biking can be reached from Fullerton and Diversey Avenues, or snag a sunny spot up on the sandy beaches for a summer escape set against a backdrop of skyscrapers.
