South of Hollywood Avenue, the Lakefront Trail winds through Lincoln Park, past soccer fields and tennis courts to the beaches, marinas, and even a waterfront golf course. This path then continues onward all the way to downtown Chicago.

The Edgewater area features a dense residential lifestyle with easy access to both public transportation and the great outdoors.  It is very accessible to public transportation, with both bus routes and the "EL" conveniently located within walking distance of Sheridan Rd and Broadway St. 

 Several theatres call the area home, as do small independent cafes, diverse restaurants and shops.  Edgewater is known for it's authentic delis, produce markets, and antique shopping.
