Stretching north in a rough row that runs parallel and close to the lake, the primarily residential neighborhoods in Lakeview and the Far North Side aren't the place for major museums or high-rises.

Whether you wander one of the many ethnic neighborhoods, contemplate the dignitaries (and scoundrels) buried in Graceland Cemetery, or celebrate a hard-won victory at Wrigley Field, this area is perfect for connecting with the sights and sounds that make Chicago the great city it is.
