Lakeview, one of Chicago’s largest and most densely populated neighborhoods, is home to historic Wrigley Field and the 2016 World Champion Chicago Cubs. Wrigleyville, the area surrounding the stadium, is filled with local sports bars and beautiful greystone and brick flats on tree-lined streets. For those more interested in the arts, The Belmont Theater District boasts more than 30 different live theater venues that host a variety of shows and performances. Improv comedy is king in Chicago; Lakeview residents can enjoy a laugh at any of the several comedy clubs nearby. It should also be noted that, although Lakeview residents have a strong hold on the entertainment market, they also have an unmatched love of the outdoors. Near the lakefront sits 1,200 acres designated to outdoor recreation, where you'll find golf courses and driving ranges, a bird sanctuary, tennis courts and easy access to the Lakefront Trail.
The CTA operates 9 different bus routes that run through the Lakeview East neighborhood approximately every 20 minutes daily, 7 days a week. Lakeview is also serviced by the Red Line at Belmont, Addison, and Sheridan, and by the Brown and Purple Lines at Diversey, Wellington, and Belmont.
