Lincoln Park, in my opinion, is one of the best places to live in Chicago. It is conveniently located close to the downtown area. Shopping is great-- there are cute little family-owned boutiques as well as your favorite chain stores. There are many great restaurants, and we have the Lincoln Park Zoo, which is free. There many families that are always walking their big, fluffy dogs. Lincoln Park is known as one of the "safest" places to live in Chicago-- but you should still take caution. One drawback is that it has a reputation for being very expensive (but you could get lucky and find a relatively inexpensive apartment like I did).

Lincoln park is a beautiful town in the Chicagoland area because of its parks, beautiful apartments, museums, history and the night life. It's really just a beautiful town in the outskirts of the city of Chicago. The only downfall of Lincoln Park is that it's pretty expensive to live there but it literally has everything you need to have a great social life.

Lincoln Park is awesome. There are a wide range of activities for all budgets. Oz Park, Lincoln Park, The Zoo, The Conservatory are all free. There's also tons of nightlife and restaurants - Gaslight, Lincoln Park Stadium, Duffy's, Mad River are a few good bars.
