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.

Many large beautiful houses. The neighborhood has made a lot of progress in the last few years in terms of housing. Many range in style, size, and amenities.
