Live In The Heart Of Lakeview
Living at 450 W Melrose means never having to stray too far for your weekday and weekend needs. Whether you’re craving a fun scene with plenty of bars, restaurants, and nightlife, or the daily conveniences of nearby gyms, coffee shops, and boutique stores, you’ll see this is the area that offers it all. Don’t be shocked if your apartment becomes the frequent hot spot for you and your friends. With all that the area has to offer, it’ll be a constant hangout no-brainer. Other fun places you’ll likely frequent – and why wouldn’t you, when they’re all so close – will be Lake Michigan and Belmont Harbor, Wrigley Field, and the countless theaters, just a few minutes walking distance. If you need to get a bit further away, hop on the many bus routes and nearby train stops close to your front door.
Chicago summers offer endless ways to have fun on Chicago’s lakefront. And with warm weather in full swing (fingers crossed), plus all of our Chicago apartments close to the lake, we felt it would be a perfect time to outline some of our favorite things to do on the lakefront.
There are so many bars in Lakeview, it can be hard for a newcomer to navigate them. But that’s why you wanted to move to an apartment in Lakeview, to be in the thick of the action. As you spend time in your neighborhood, you’ll find your own favorites, just down the street or around the corner from your building.
Whether you are picking up some last minute produce for tonight’s dinner or stocking up on your monthly staples, you will have unlimited choices for your grocery shopping. Treasure Island, Trader Joe's, Jewel, and Whole Foods are all walking distance from your new apartment at 450 W. Melrose. There are also at least three framers’ markets in the spring and summer for super fresh fruits and vegetables.
The Chicago Pride Fest is held every June between Addison/Halsted and Broadway/Halsted. This festive event marks the first official party of summer and features dance and pop music acts on two stages, and venders featuring a variety of food, arts/crafts, and other local merchants. Pride month culminates with the Pride Parade, Chicago's neighborhood parade, on the last Sunday of every June.
