We spent a week in Lakeview and had a very great time. I could cycle everywhere around and take advantage of the lakeshore. Lakeview is one of the best neighbourhoods in Chicago (and certainly one of the most expensive!). There are nice commercial districts such as Belmont Avenue, Lincoln Avenue, Southport Avenue, Clark Street, Halsted Street and Broadway Street to shop or to go out for dinner. Endless great options for bars and pubs too as Wrigley Field is right there!
If you’re not a Cubs Fan don’t go! Lakeview offers a nice arts scene as well with summer street festivals and live music in theaters.
You can easily ride your bike all around and spend hours at the Lakefront Trail or in the grassy fields which are perfect for picnics!
Cécile lives in Chicago though is originally from southern France. She’s an avid traveler and is always excited by new adventures. After living in Ireland, Australia and Canada, Cécile is an advocate of having a routine but not staying comfortable for too long.
