Lincoln Park is a North Side neighborhood located on the western edge of the enormous park bearing the same name, which runs north-south along Lake Michigan and contains a zoo, an observatory, The Chicago History Museum, and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, among many other attractions. The area is known for its high-end shopping and cuisine — most notably Grant Achatz’s molecular gastronomy gamechanger Alinea, a 3-star Michelin powerhouse widely considered one of the best restaurants in the world. Such sophistication comes at a price: Lincoln Park is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Chicago. But its beautiful, tree-lined streets, excellent schools, and easy proximity to Downtown make it an attractive location for many renters.
