Where to Live
You really can't go wrong when picking an area of Streeterville to live in. Whether you live east, closer to the lake, or a bit west, closer to Michigan Avenue and the Magnificent Mile, everything you need is easily located within walking distance. Whether you are searching for a studio, loft, condo, or a penthouse, your options are plentiful. Almost all residential options are in high-rises, but you will find a handful of brownstones and smaller buildings. Most buildings offer luxury amenities. This goes beyond a pool or gym and could include a doorman, parking attendants, and an array of concierge services.
While Streeterville is associated with pricey high-rise buildings, the surplus of real estate means you can find affordable housing—just be prepared to sacrifice square footage. With prices comparable to those in the Loop but with the benefit of little space between home and the office, Streeterville is an ideal option for those who place a high value on convenience.
Where to Eat
There is no shortage of dining options in Streeterville. Some of the hottest hotels and restaurants in the city are on the Magnificent Mile or in the neighboring River North and Gold Coast neighborhoods. While luxury dining is plentiful, there are many cafes, fast-food restaurants, and reasonably priced grab-and-go options to choose from.
What You'll See
Streeterville is home to Navy Pier, The Old Water Tower District, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Magnificent Mile, so expect to see lots of tourists from around the world. The neighborhood includes Northwestern Memorial Hospital and the downtown campus of Northwestern University as well, so you will find plenty of students and medical professionals. Also expect to see fashion-forward locals and suited-up professionals who live nearby, are in town for business, or commute from other areas of Chicago and the suburbs.
Friday Night Fun
Check to see if the Museum of Contemporary Art or any of the nearby restaurants and hotels have special events going on. Don't forget The Signature Room, where you can enjoy a cocktail and amazing views from the 95th floor of the John Hancock Center. If you are in the mood for a show, head to the nearby Theater District to find opera, live theater, concerts, and off-Broadway or pre-Broadway shows. You can even head to one of the more casual options such as live jazz, bowling, or a movie.
The Perfect Sunday
Sunday is a great day to sit down at a cafe and unwind or to grab brunch with friends and catch up. If you like shopping, the Magnificent Mile offers some of the best shopping in the city. In the spring and summer, head over to the nearby lakefront to enjoy the beach. Navy Pier and its surrounding parks also make a great weekend destination, while the Riverwalk can offer a quiet respite from tourists.
The Navy Pier Terminal serves as a transportation hub with buses running north, west, and south. The Grand Avenue bus will take you west towards any 'L' stop (the closest being the State/Grand Red Line stop) while buses also run express north/south along Lake Shore Drive. Avid cyclists have one of the city's most convenient trails at their fingertips—Lake Shore Trail—which will put them in the Loop or Lincoln Park in just minutes.
Streeterville is also extremely walkable, with River North's restaurants waiting on the other side of Michigan Avenue and the center of the Loop just a quick jaunt across the river. Due to the high traffic volume along Michigan Avenue, rideshares can only pick you up along the east/west side streets.
The ability to walk just about everywhere • No car needed • Luxurious lifestyle • Easy access to Chicago's culture.
Locals Don't Love
Heavy street traffic • Expensive parking • Nearby grocers and drug stores can be costly.
