While Wrigleyville is synonymous with fun, entertainment and, of course, the Cubs, it really is much more than that. Clark, Addison, Broadway and other major thoroughfares are home to great restaurants, shops and a night life appealing to a variety of tastes and styles. The true heart of the neighborhood, though, lies in the quaint, tree-lined streets where vintage single-family homes and historic rental walk-ups create a tranquil setting. Add in a few mom-and-pop bakeries, lots of outdoor dining options, and you’ve got yourself the best the city has to offer.
Wrigleyville is steps to Lake Michigan, providing great access to the lakefront trail for outdoor recreation, including Belmont Harbor sailing (or boat watching), golfing, and tennis matches. The park space and trails are perfect for solo runs or walks, picnics, or furry friends eager to unleash some pent up energy.
