Lakeview, sometimes spelled Lake View, is a remarkable community located on the north side of Chicago. With a population of approximately 98,000 people, it’s the second-largest neighborhood in the city. Lakeview is home to smaller neighborhoods like Sheridan Station Corridor, North Halsted, and Wrigleyville, a district that surrounds Wrigley Field. (Wrigley Field is where you can watch the Chicago Cubs baseball games.) Money Magazine ranked Lakeview as one of the best metropolitan neighborhoods in which to live.
Lakeview offers much to do in its beautiful area. It hosts many art events like the Lakeview East Festival of the Arts that features over 150 artists, performers, food, and live entertainment. There is also the Chicago Marathon, which is one of the world’s largest road races. It even hosts smaller family-friendly events like Easter Egg Hunts and Halloween costume contests. If you’re a lover of performing arts, then you’ll love to know that this neighborhood has eight theaters and two music venues. The community also has several modes of transportation, so owning a car is optional. Transportation ranges from conventional modes like buses and taxis to unique ones like bicycle rickshaws. It’s also conveniently lined with several bike paths if you prefer to ride your bike. Lake Michigan is this community’s most prominent feature. You can visit its beach to sunbathe or marvel at its gorgeous waters. Additionally, Lakeview offers a nice selection of schools operated by the Chicago Public School District: seven elementary schools, one high school, and two magnet schools.
