Lincoln Park is a neighborhood with two personalities: devoted parent and party animal. During the day, families and residents visit attractions like the Lincoln Park Zoo, Chicago History Museum, and the neighborhood's many upscale retailers and restaurants. At night, Lincoln Park becomes a playground for 20-somethings packed into bars that stretch along Lincoln Avenue. Must-see attractions include the Biograph Theater (where famous bank robber John Dillinger was gunned down), the Lincoln Park Conservatory, and the immense lakefront park for which the neighborhood is named.
