What Is So Great About Living In Lincoln Park Chicago?
The best part of living in Lincoln Park Chicago besides waking up with Starbuck's in my cup is having access to the culture in such an active and vibrant neighborhood.
Whenever I felt the urge to immerse myself in elaborate landscaping, beautiful flowers, tropical palm trees, and exotic plants, I would visit the Lincoln Park Conservatory.
The ambiance of this place is very serene especially if you love nature and there is so much to see that you could spend hours walking amongst the lush greenery of this exotic jungle.
I recommend visiting Lincoln Park Conservatory in the cooler months because the temperature settings inside are set to accommodate the plants and without air conditioning that could be a little overwhelming in the warmer months.
... I Tried Walking On Water But ...
I decided to instead play volleyball, ride my bike and people watch, which seems to be the greatest attraction. Because North Avenue Beach is one of the most popular beaches, it gets extremely crowded, and parking can be mission impossible.
My favorite thing about Lincoln Park Zoo is ZooLights, one of Chicago's most popular annual holiday traditions. The artistic transformation of the zoo into an enchanted wonderland, with musical light shows, 3D displays, and beautiful ice carvings. I walked or took public transportation to this event because it draws tons of people and parking is a "zoo!"
I love music! That being said, one of the coolest places I frequented in Lincoln Park Chicago is a very popular dark and seedy blues joint, Kingston Mines. Its specialty is authentic Blues! The patrons keep this neighborhood joint in business because the line to get in always extends down the block and around the corner!
Yep, Lincoln Park Chicago has quite a bit to offer its residents. Moreover, if you do not own a car ... well, that's okay because the popular modes of transportation include Uber, biking, Metra, and walking. Pick your poison!
