Located right by the lake, LP is named after the large and beautiful park that surrounds it (and has completely outgrown it). You’ll find that Second City, good restaurants and the Chicago History museum are all within walking distance of the Fullerton Red Line stop - an easy way to get there from UChicago.
- Molly’s Cupcakes — the best cupcakes on the North Side. Try the Cookie Monster (real cookie dough!) or the Peach Cobbler.
- Lincoln Park Zoo — free, which makes it the best zoo ever in our book. Of all of the 1200 animals, make sure to watch the Polar Bear swim laps in his pool.
- Bourgeois Pig — a Chicago cafe unlike any other, the BP is in two halves of an old house with an 18th Century feel and sandwiches named after literary masterpieces and historical figures. Try the banana nutella milkshake or the “Great Gatsby” while you do your Hume readings.
