Gold Coast real estate and old world charm go hand-in-hand. Although it stretches just one square mile, this notable neighborhood is synonymous with real estate magnificence. Despite the area’s reputation for pricey homes, both Gold Coast condos for sale and Gold Coast apartments fit a wide budget range.
Many high-rises in the neighborhood offer unparalleled views of Lake Michigan, but your housing options aren’t limited to condominiums. Historic mansions and townhomes are fairly common in the area, helping families spread out without sacrificing easy access to River North and the Loop.
Oak Street is home to many chic shops, boutiques, Michelin-rated restaurants and specialty food stores. On Rush Street, Gold Coast residents experience a livelier side of town. Stately hotels, nightclubs and cocktail bars allow for the ultimate upscale social scene. While there’s plenty for locals to revel in along the Gold Coast, the red and brown lines make transportation easy for residents looking to explore the rest of the Windy City.
Here are a few of Z Chicago’s favorite Gold Coast spots to eat, drink and play:
- Best brunch: 3 Arts Club Cafe
- Views for days: The Signature Room at the John Hancock
- Bar hopping: Rush Street
- Best shopping: 900 North Michigan Shops
- On a chilly, gray winter day: Newberry Library
- On a sunny, bright summer day: Washington Square Park
