Lincoln Park is one of Chicago’s premier neighborhoods for shopping. Whether you’re searching for furniture, clothes or gifts from national brands to independent boutiques, we’ve got it all. Recognized by hotel concierges, bloggers and fashion experts for being home to a stylish and concentrated retail scene, the neighborhood’s boutiques and other retailers are an amazing asset.
Along Clark Street and Diversey you’ll find more boutiques and retailers in a shopping corridor that shines with customers popping in and out of bustling storefronts. In fact, the Diversey and Clark intersection and surrounding area is one of the most trafficked by pedestrians in the City of Chicago and only steps from the lakefront attractions.
Lincoln Park’s Clybourn Corridor is well known for being home to some of the nation’s most popular brands, with a primary focus on home goods and furniture. Onsite parking is available at many businesses in this corridor and recently the NEWCITY complex was completed with fresh new brands and parking. But the CTA’s North Avenue bus or North/Clybourn Red Line stop may be your best bet – that is, if you’re not buying a new couch while visiting the area!
A quick trip east down North Avenue from the Clybourn Corridor brings you to Old Town. A historic community with much of its shopping and dining tucked within Lincoln Park’s shadow. Old Town is another walkable area with a contrast of local favorites and national brands. Local’s tip: If you’re staying downtown, the south end of the neighborhood is a great place to start or end your trip as it’s located just blocks from River North and Streeterville hotels.
Of all the hot shopping spots in Lincoln Park, perhaps the most unique is the Armitage –Halsted – Webster area. Both a historic district and architecturally significant, Armitage – Halsted – Webster is the place for high-end clothing, handmade accessories, one-of-a-kind gifts, children’s goodies and other great Chicago treasures. Armitage – Halsted– Webster has gained national notoriety for attracting exclusive brands, and the community’s tree lined streets and historic homes makes you forget that you’re in one of the world’s largest cities!
