Nestled close to the Lake Michigan shoreline, the Gold Coast is luxury and romance personified (as the name implies, this is one of the country’s most affluent neighborhoods). Streets are lined with historic mansions, designer boutiques, celebrated restaurants, and historic hotels. In the evenings, you’ll find a dynamic bar-hopping scene spilling out onto Rush Street until late into the night.
Dotted with architectural gems that range from vintage row houses to doorman high-rises, the Gold Coast is a quiet, well-preserved retreat in downtown Chicago. Its tree-lined streets host many of the city’s most prestigious homes, and afford residents superior access to Lake Michigan.
An educated, affluent blend of young families and well-established professionals.
