Talk about “Best of Both Worlds”. This compact neighborhood is a sought-after spot to live for a reason—close to Downtown and right on Lake Michigan, it’s got tons of green space without sacrificing the big-city feel. Lincoln Park is also home to one of the largest private schools in the country, DePaul University.


Inside Lincoln Park itself, you’ll be able to visit one of the largest free zoos in the country—along with the Chicago History Museum, Conservatory, and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. North Avenue Beach is another hot spot, where you can access the biker and pedestrian-friendly Lakefront Trail.

The neighborhood offers an incredible variety of dining options—think Michelin-star dining alongside endless casual eats. Lincoln Park has something for every palate—from the world-renowned Alinea to a handful of amazing bang-for-your-buck spots surrounding the university. The shopping is also top-notch—head over to Armitage Ave for your favorite boutiques and retail.

This area ranks high on the walkability meter, but if you’ve already gotten your steps in for the day, public transportation is easily accessible around here. Take advantage of the variety of bus routes, or the Brown, Purple, and Red CTA lines running straight through the area for easy travel around the city.


Being such a versatile place to live, Lincoln Park has a wide variety of real estate options to match. Older buildings are more affordable, but you’ll also find plenty of new luxury builds with more on-site amenities at higher price points. Being so close to the university, the neighborhood offers a ton of studio floor plans and 1 bedroom apartments geared towards solo renters.
