Acclaimed public and private schools and DePaul University’s energetic campus life make Lincoln Park a family-friendly neighborhood with a longstanding tradition of civic involvement. The area also pulses with engaging performing arts spaces and live music venues, which attract people of all ages from all over the city.


Collegiate, affluent, fashionable, and family-friendly.

Claiming one of the nation’s greatest urban parks as your front yard.

An ample 1,208 acres of green space, the neighborhood’s namesake park hosts a free zoo, theater, nature museum and conservatory, 15-acre pond, five playgrounds, and bustling harbor. Its nearby lakefront trail and beaches are set against a backdrop of downtown skyscrapers.


Diverse arts and entertainment met with a buzzing nightlife scene.

Lincoln Park presents a unique mix of bars, restaurants, and entertainment spots. From low-key dives to swanky hotel rooftop bars, the nightlife typically caters to a younger crowd around DePaul’s main campus. Thriving blues clubs and mainstream concert venues, as well as theater at the Steppenwolf and improv at iO Theater, appeal to all demographics.


A plethora of ways to explore right outside your front door.

Large living quarters at an affordable price point might be hard to come by here, but there are plenty of places within the neighborhood to help stretch your legs. North Pond Nature Sanctuary, park playgrounds, seasonal farmers markets like the Green City Market, big-box stores in Clybourn Corridor, and restaurant patios will all feel like extensions of your home.


Affordable apartments in vintage brownstones as well as expensive modern condos and revitalized single-family homes.

Loft condos in converted factories and warehouses can be found around the university and beautiful high-rises along the lake offer breathtaking views at high price points. Vintage walk-ups and condos can be more affordable, but prices rapidly escalate for rehabs and new construction.


Historic appeal with chic upgrades.

Packed with small boutiques and high-end retailers on Armitage Avenue, casual cafes and eateries spilling out onto sidewalks on Clark and Halsted Streets, and a buzzing bar and music landscape on Lincoln Avenue, Lincoln Park sets the stage for college students, young professionals, and families who also desire the cast-iron facades and sense of history.


Due to convenient access to the "L" and many bus stops, Lincoln Park is easy to navigate despite its size. You're never far from an express train into the Loop or north to the city limits because the Brown, Purple, and Red lines pass through the neighborhood's heart. As opposed to a Diversey Parkway route, which takes you directly to Logan Square, Armitage Avenue and Fullerton Avenue bus lines will take you to the lake or across the river to Bucktown, respectively. Even a bus service to popular destinations like the zoo and museums runs down Stockton Drive through the park section of Lincoln Park.

Public Transport Passenger


Chicago Theatre Week

Live theater is an amazing experience for everyone, no matter their age. But if you’re not able to treat your family to live theater very often, book tickets for local performances during Chicago Theatre Week in February. This event features discounted tickets between $15 and $30 (or less) for popular shows at fantastic theaters around town. You can see improv at The Second City or comedies and family shows at Broadway Playhouse just a few miles south of Lincoln Park.
