One of Chicago's most vibrant neighborhoods, Lakeview lies on the shores of Lake Michigan. With access to the lake, several train routes, and a significant stretch of the gorgeous Lincoln Park—Chicago's beloved green oasis—hotels in Lakeview are perfectly positioned as a lovely escape not far from the Windy City's downtown. Lakeview itself is divided into three smaller sections: East Lakeview, home to a large LGBT population in Boystown, which is known for its role in Chicago Pride; West Lakeview; and Wrigleyville, which is built around the Chicago Cubs' Wrigley Field.
Travelers arriving at O'Hare International Airport can take the Blue Line subway, and then a bus, in order to get to Lakeview. Alternatively, it's an easy 14-mile drive on Route 90 by car. Lakeview's proximity to downtown Chicago is attractive, and you can easily take one of the L trains to more hotels in Chicago if you'd like to spend a night elsewhere in the city. However, Lakeview hotels offer access to plenty of nearby attractions. Check out the Belmont Theater District for performances from more than 20 different theater companies, and don't miss the excellent vintage shops, bars, and pubs on Broadway and Halsted streets. Wrigleyville has some of the best sports bars in the city on North Clark Street, and East Lakeview boasts excellent architecture in the form of historic churches. Spend some serene time at the Lakefront Trail, which offers great views, a golf course, and more. Much of Lakeview's charm lies in its shops, businesses, theaters, and parks, but two must-see sights are the authentic Kwagulth Totem Pole and the adjacent Jarvis Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Lincoln Park. Consider Lakeview car rentals so that you can get to everything you want to see around town.
