Lincoln Square

Lincoln Square was established in the 1840s by German immigrants, and today, German influence reigns supreme. From Bavarian-style bakeries and shops to traditional German brats and beer, the neighborhood is bursting with German flair. 

The area hosts several festivals every year, including the German American Oktoberfest. This one is a site to behold with its ode to Deutschland heritage through song, dance, and of course, food. 

Speaking of food, you’ll find yourself surrounded by trendy spots to whet your appetite and the cocktails won’t let you down, either. 

The eating is good in Lincoln Square, but so is the list of cool places to visit:

  • Old Town School of Folk Music- not only is this venue hoppin’ with first-class indie talent, but it’s also a renowned music school for treble-makers of all ages, so get ready to rock
  • Gene’s Sausage Shop- if the sausages don’t swoon you, the rooftop beer and wine garden will
  • Davis Theater- check out the latest movies in serious style at this historical landmark that started its career entertaining the people with vaudeville acts and silent films
  • Merz Apothecary- customers come from far and wide to bask in the elements of this health and beauty old-world shop; if your senses need awakening, here’s the place to make it happen
  • DANK Haus- the German American social and cultural center offers events, education, and exhibits that tantalize those with a thirst for discovery and history
  • Wells Park- dogs running, kites flying, kids laughing, and sun shining; this is a park for nature lovers, relaxers, ballers, and picnicers

Lincoln Square is a tremendously sought-after area, providing ample lots for its single-family homes, enhancing privacy and outdoor living. The neighborhood has excellent public schools and transportation, making it popular among young families and professionals alike. You can expect to pay just under $500,000 for the average home, but prices go up to over $2M. 

If you want to live in this suburban oasis with an urban feel, stay on the lookout for real estate because these places go fast!
