About Chicago, Illinois
Chicago offers endless choices of where to live and each neighborhood has unique qualities and amenities.  Walking tours are offered in almost every neighborhood and a stop at the Chicago History Museum provides a fascinating look into the past.
Lincoln Park is a prefect representation of urban neighborhood life.  From beautiful brownstones to quiet little tree-lined streets, Lincoln Park has the market cornered on charm combined with convenience. Home to DePaul University's campus, the area is also full of a number of fun bars, restaurants, and locally owned boutiques. From students to families to young professionals, Lincoln Park attracts Chicagoans from all walks of life.  It is also home to the Lincoln Park Zoo, set on 35 acres of beautiful land, just steps from Lake Michigan.  The zoo was founded in 1868, making it among the oldest zoos in North America.  It is also one of a few free admission zoos in the United States.
Chicago fans are still basking in the thrill of the Cubs 2016 World Series win.  Wrigleyville is a lively little pocket in the Lakeview neighborhood that sits in the shadows of historic Wrigley Field, the second oldest stadium in baseball and home to the beloved Chicago Cubs. It has become a magnet for sports fans and young professionals alike.  There really is nothing like a day at the ballpark!
Foodies appreciate the River North area.  A stylish urban neighborhood that borders the Magnificent Mile and is just across the bridge from the Loop, River North is the go-to district for those who appreciate fine art and design. And for those who appreciate fine dining and drinks, the momentum behind the latest trendsetting openings continues to build and the late night energy swells.
Check out Chicago's scenic skyline and iconic architecture 150 feet into the sky on the new Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier, Illinois' most popular attraction. Look out at views in all directions from 1,000 feet above The Magnificent Mile, an upscale stretch of shopping along Michigan Avenue.  Cruises along the Chicago River offer another great vantage point to see and learn about the rich history of Chicago architecture.  Find out how Chicago rose from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire to become the birthplace of the skyscraper and how Chicago has ties to 21st Century architecture marvels like the Burj Khalifa.
