With its diverse shopping districts, restaurants, and nightlife, it's no wonder why Lakeview is becoming an increasingly popular Chicago neighborhood. The neighborhood is bordered by Lake Michigan (hence the name Lakeview) and is perfect for those who enjoy boating, volleyball, skating and jogging along the lakefront.
Lakeview is home to a diverse group of residents, which is clearly reflected in the neighborhood's wide variety of shops and restaurants. Lakeview is easily accessible by public transportation, as the Brown, Red and Purple Lines run through the neighborhood, along with several bus lines. The housing in Lakeview features high-rises along with single-family homes, condominiums, multi-unit apartment buildings, and lofts.
