The Neighborhood

Once a small army post, today Lincoln Park is known as a progressive neighborhood recognized for its incredible variety of entertainment, dining, cultural and recreational activities.

Lincoln Park has it all - whether you are looking for a vintage boutique, bustling pub, nighttime theater, walks on the sand or a visit with lions and tigers.

In the last decade, young professionals have been increasingly attracted to this charming neighborhood only 2 1/2 miles from Chicago's business district.

The new, young demographic has also altered the Lincoln Park landscape - demanding better parks, tennis courts, restaurants and shops.  "Rehab fever" has increased demand for older homes, dramatically rising property values.

Today, Lincoln Park boast some of the city's best "off Loop" theaters, the famous Second City improvisational comedy club, jazz and blues nightclubs, the Lincoln Park Zoo, a conservatory, beaches, boats harbors, lakefront bike and jogging trails, the Chicago Historical Society museum and the Peggy Notebart Nature Museum.
