Lincoln Park, Chicago, Illinois, USA

It is hard not to fall in love to the Windy City.

It has the vibe of a metropolis and a low-key awesomeness of a residential neighborhood at the same time.

It has the “L”, the arts, the blues, the towers, the theater, the lake, the deep-dish pizza and the popcorn.

It has everything there is to enjoy without spending a penny, a great city to explore for kids, families, adults and solo travelers.

I must say that I dreamed of New York, but I fell in love with Chicago.

To add up to the many list why I would like to live in Chicago if I can is the Lincoln Park.

Though a bit far from the downtown area, accessible by train and passing by the brownstone apartments on Clark Street and independent boutiques of Armitage Avenue, the free entrance lakefront park consisting of Lincoln Park Zoo and Lincoln Park Conservatory lives up to the city motto of “City in a Garden”.

Lincoln Park vast ground and different walking trail is a place to get out of the built up city for a while, where the skyscraper skyline is nothing but just a distant panoramic view across the pond.

It is hard to gauge the vastness of Lincoln Park on the ground, but a view from the 94th floor 360° Chicago observation deck (formerly John Hancock Observatory) says otherwise.

Surrounded by high rise buildings and residential area, colored by autumn leaves, the Lincoln Park is indeed an urban oasis.

Located at the Magnificent Mile, the John Hancock Center, the building that houses the 360° Chicago Observatory is easily distinguished by the distinctive X-shaped external bracing that eliminates the need for inner support columns made it an architectural icon.

On a clear day, you got nothing but the best view at the observation deck due to its unique location, almost at the fringe of the city limit- the view of Chicago and Lake Michigan at almost equal parts.
