The neighborhood is one of the biggest draws for buyers looking to live in Lakeview. The area offers a mix of an active outdoor lifestyle, with beaches, lakefront bike paths, and walking trails located within just a few blocks. The area also offers an active nightlife with many popular restaurants and bars located within just a couple of blocks from home. North Sheffield Avenue and Lincoln Avenue are home to some of the most popular restaurants, including Gino's, Mad River, and Pompeii Pizza. Many bars are also open till the early hours along these avenues.

If you commute to downtown every day, you'll love the quick connections on the El from the neighborhood.

There are also plenty of buses serving the neighborhood, connecting Lakeview to surrounding areas.

While Lakeview has enjoyed strong sales over the past few years, the last few months haven't been the best for the real estate market. According to data from the Chicago Association of Realtors, a total of just 596 condos and lofts were sold in the neighborhood during the second quarter 2008, down from 806 units sold during the same period a year ago. This is the lowest sales total for the second quarter seen since 1999 in Lakeview. However, the dramatic drop in sales could mean more deals for buyers over the next few months.
