The low-down on Lincoln Park

Have some fun in Lincoln Park, one of Chicago's most popular neighborhoods

“Each time I leave, Chicago is tugging my sleeve Chicago is The Wrigley Building, Chicago is The Union Stockyard, Chicago is one town that won’t let you down It’s my kind of town.”

So sang Sinatra back in 1964. Old Blue Eyes wasn’t wrong. Nowhere beats Chicago both metaphorically and literally being the home of the skyscraper).

All of the Windy City will, ahem, blow you but we have a soft spot for Lincoln Park – an upscale neighborhood along the lake.

Dance to Evolve’s classes take place at Urbanity Dance Chicago and we have some super suggestions on what to do on either side of dance class. Read on for our guide to the best things to do in Lincoln Park.

FIVE THINGS TO DO IN LINCOLN PARK

Lincoln Park Zoo
This free open-air zoo is a great way for your little dancers to get some culture without spending a dime! Marvel at more than 1,000 animals, from apes to peng all year round. (The zoo is open 365 days a year).

Chicago History Museum
Want to learn more about the Windy City  – where it’s been and where it’s headed? Make for the Chicago History Museum. Little dancers will love the ‘Sensing Chicago’ exhibit. Expect an enormous Chicago-style hot dog that visitors can climb into! Meanwhile, adults will appreciate informative exhibitions like ‘Lincoln’s Chicago’.

Lincoln Park
No visit is complete without spending a couple of hours in the eponymous park  – Chicago’s largest public park. Named after the 16th President of the United States following his assassination in 1865,  the park stretches along the lakeshore for seven miles.

North Avenue Beach
Located directly on Lake Michigan, North Avenue Beach is one of the most popular swimming spots in Chicago. The sandy beach offers an array of activities including volleyball courts. In the winter months, rent a bike.

Lincoln Park Conservatory
The Conservatory in Lincoln Park is one of Chicago’s hidden gems. These peaceful and enchanting gardens are home to thousands of plants. DTE tip? Don’t miss the room filled with dozens of orchid varieties and the fabulous fern collection.
