Constantly brimming with many of Chicago’s best-known attractions, Lakeview is a destination for entertainment and leisure with a wide variety of restaurants, theaters, shops and parks all within walking distance. Wrigleyville and Boystown, smaller enclaves in the heart of Lakeview, attract a vibrant and eclectic culture to the area. Die-hard sports fans flock to Wrigleyville to see the Chicago Cubs play at Wrigley Field or catch a game at one of the area’s many sports bars. Boystown, known for its prominent gay community, hosts Chicago’s annual Pride Parade.
Lakeview is a neighborhood where college students, young professionals and families seamlessly reside and mingle. Lakeview residents who wish to escape the bustling street life are only steps away from Chicago’s Lakefront Trail, Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course and Belmont Harbor.
Chicago Park District maintains over 40 parks in the Lakeview area, including swimming and gym facilities at Gill Park and a mini-golf and driving range at Diversey Driving Range.
Venture outside of your comfort zone at Trapeze on the Lake, or stick to the sports leagues and teams at The Center on Halsted. Other recreational activities include biking, walking, running, and skating along the waterfront path at the lake.
