Willowy Windy City Vaca: The Willows Chicago PDF Print E-mail

Lakeview is one of Chicago's older neighborhoods, your 'true north' of Lincoln Park—five miles from the Loop. It is home to The Willows Chicago, a charming boutique hotel with French country-style decor.  You're just a few blocks west of Lake Michigan on a quiet tree-lined street - peace this summer season!

Chicago's Lakeview: Upscale, Trendy Neighborhood
along Lake Michigan          
(Chicago Vacations/ Chicago Lodging Facilities)


Lakeview is situated about five miles north of the Loop. It's a bustling neighborhood along Lake Michigan, bisected by major thoroughfares such as Clark and Broadway, which are lined with shops, restaurants, and galleries. It's worth it to swing by nearby Wrigley Field even when the Cubbies aren't playing to take a historic tour of the ballpark, the second-oldest in the Majors. You'll see the ivy-covered walls in the outfield, take a seat in the dugout, and survey the Friendly Confines from the press box.

Just around the corner, the Chicago History Museum houses thousands of artifacts, manuscripts, and photographs that detail the city’s colorful history.

Check out the rotating lineup of 
exhibits such as Lincoln’s Chicago, which profiles the 16th president’s frequent visits to the Windy City, and Vivian Maier's Chicago, a gallery by a nanny-turned-photographer that portrays life in Chicago in the '60s and '70s.
