One of the most quintessential streets in the entire city of Chicago is Armitage Avenue. Located in the historic heart of trendy, urban Lincoln Park, Armitage is most known for its gorgeous tree-lined streets and classic, colorful Victorian row houses. Upscale boutiques and restaurants pepper the avenue making it a must-see place on any visit to Chicago.
A walk down Armitage Avenue is certain to leave you spellbound. The architecture is striking, the street is bustling and the sound of the passing “L” train (short for elevated train) cannot be missed. A leisurely afternoon stroll through the quaint, picturesque street and surrounding neighborhood is a great way to experience one of Chicago’s premier neighborhoods.
Here are some of my favorite sites:
One of the best things about this neighborhood is that it continues well beyond Armitage. You can stroll for hours checking out the beautiful side streets and getting to know lovely Lincoln Park.
I spent five wonderful years living in Lincoln Park. I miss it dearly and was happy to revisit the city last weekend as there is always so much to see. It is a great city with lots of charm. In my opinion, a city to be reckoned with.
