Lakeview’s diverse dining, shopping and entertainment options offer a broad appeal to visitors and residents of all ages. This sprawling North Side community, one of Chicago’s largest, is characterized by a vast culinary landscape of cuisines and cultures, and equally plentiful shops and boutiques. Lakeview encompasses two popular districts: Wrigleyville, home of Wrigley Field and the Chicago Cubs; and Boystown, one of the nation’s largest and most vibrant LGBT communities.
