Shop. Dine. Live. Visit Lincoln Park.
Chicago is a city of neighborhoods, each with distinctive character and style. Lincoln Park, named after the vast stretch of parkland that runs through it, is famous for its vibrancy, beauty, and wealth of options for recreation and entertainment.
Clark Street in Lincoln Park is at the heart of the neighborhood and known for its boutiques, restaurants, bars, and clubs. But this happening haven is about so much more than drop-dead-gorgeous clothes and thrumming nightlife. It’s one of our nation’s finest urban playgrounds. To wit: Lincoln Park, 1.5 miles of tree-lined paths dotted with statues and home to ponds, playing fields, and a rowing canal; the Lincoln Park Conservatory, with eye-popping exotic blooms and extravagant foliage year-round; the Lincoln Park Zoo, a world class experience with winding, expansive grounds and happy, healthy animals.
Historic sights, including the Biograph Theater where John Dillinger was gunned down in 1934; The Chicago History Museum, a creative urban history museum; the Elks National Veteran’s Memorial, a grand neoclassical structure with a luxurious must-see interior. And the lake of course, with its gorgeous beaches and lakefront paths for running, cycling, and strolling. Come visit Lincoln Park, but clear your schedule first; because you’ll want to stay a while.
