South Shore

Community Area: South Shore
Located on Chicago's scenic lakefront, southeast of the University of Chicago and Museum of Science and Industry, South Shore was once a retreat for Chicago's society set. Today, the neighborhood's beautiful beaches, plentiful green space and easy access to downtown via Lake Shore Drive are prompting renewed interest from homebuyers and sparking redevelopment in the area.

South Shore's lakefront boasts high rise condominiums with stunning lake views that rival those found anywhere in the city. The neighborhood includes large, older mansions, smaller single-family homes at reasonable prices, and a number of condominium conversions.

The heart of South Shore is the South Shore Cultural Center, formerly the exclusive South Shore Country Club. This lakefront gem includes a theater, nature center and a nine-hole golf course, all of which are now open to the public. The Center also offers a wide array of cultural arts programming and performances for residents of all ages. Additionally, South Shore's Rainbow Beach is one of the largest beaches in the city.
