Description


Lake View, Community Area #6 sits 4 miles north of Chicago’s Loop. Once a trail path for a number of North American Indian tribes, including the Miami, Ottowa and Winnebago, the land was eventually settled by European immigrants who made the area farmland to celery, flowers and other crops. In its history, Lake View has been a village, a township, a Chicago suburb, its own city, and eventually a community area of Chicago. The area is also home to a variety of architecturally impressive buildings and homes.

Comprised of neighborhoods such as Wrigleyville, Lakeview, and East Lakeview, the area is home to numerous national and city landmarks, and several landmark districts. This combined with an interesting history provide the backdrop for a wonderful bike ride. Won’t you join us?
