The aptly named Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent neighborhoods, where new mansions continue to spring up alongside the grand residences built by Chicago’s 19th century elite. From hotel-magnate Potter Palmer’s castle-like mansion to the Astor Street Historical District’s beautiful brownstones, the architectural riches are boundless. The Rush & Division intersection a few blocks away is a vibrant hotspot of trendy bars, nightclubs – the perfect place for people-watching and celebrity-spotting.
El: Red Line to Chicago Ave, Clark/Division; Bus: 147, 151, 156. For more travel information, visit www.transitchicago.com.
