Anchored by a gorgeous stretch of Lake Michigan shoreline to the east, and encompassing diverse neighborhoods, such as East Lakeview, Central Lakeview, Wrigleyville and Boystown, Lakeview has a broad appeal to visitors and residents of every type.
Lakeview, one of Chicago’s largest neighborhoods, is characterized by a vast culinary landscape of cuisines and cultures, which allow for endless options of restaurants, bars and pubs, to dine and or share a drink. In addition to dining, the many commercial districts throughout the neighborhood, offer residents some of the best shopping and entertainment in the city. Lakeview also boasts some of the city’s top schools, plus a wealth of arts and cultural attractions.
Making full use of its lakefront, Lakeview takes advantage of this space through a scenic lakefront trail, a golf course and driving range, a bird sanctuary, a boat harbor and large open green spaces that are perfect for sunbathing, picnics and taking in the views.
With housing prices for just about any price point, Lakeview is a popular choice for many Chicagoans. Those looking for a rental or condo home have an array of vintage walk-ups, loft buildings, courtyard buildings, high-rises and new construction three-flats to choose from.
