August 31, 2012

From the cultural corners of Logan Square, we are off to the lakefront to visit the neighborhood of Lakeview.

 

A Closer Look at Lakeview

Check out the stops on our tour of Lakeview to get to know this popular, and expansive, neighborhood of Chicago.

Stop 1: Belmont El Station

If you’re on the Red, Brown, or Purple Line you can get off at the Belmont station and find yourself in an eclectic stretch of ethnic restaurants, out-of-the-ordinary clubs, and vintage boutiques. The Belmont station isn’t the only el that services Lakeview, though. Take the Red Line to Addison or the Brown to Southport. Once you’re there, get ready to walk. The neighborhood scored a 91 out of 100 for “walkability” according to walkscore.com.

 

Stop 2:  Lakeview East

Lakeview East is the district of Lakeview closest to Lake Michigan. In this area, you’ll find an active nightlife scene, a foodie’s paradise, and great live theatre offerings. The district is home to a large LGBT community and hosts an annual Gay Pride Parade each June.

 

Stop 3: Wrigleyville

Wrigley Field stands in the heart of Wrigleyville and gives the district a unique charm. Nowhere else can you find townies and tourists alike enjoying the camaraderie that stems from Cubs-loving than right where it all takes place. Restaurants, bars, and music venues surround the iconic stadium, persuading you to stay in the area long after the final pitch.

 

Stop 4: Waveland Park

Along the shores of Lake Michigan, you’ll find Waveland Park. Play tennis or softball at Waveland or just pack a picnic for some chill time. Speaking of chillin’, the annual Better Homes and Gardens Chill and Grill Festival is held here every summer.

 

Stop 5: Lake View High School

The massive school at the corner of Ashland and Irving Park was re-built at its monolithic status in the late 1800s. The school is known for its commitment to education, as are other schools in the area, including elementary schools Nettelhorst School and Burley School.
