One of the best parts of Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood is its location — just north of downtown, with easy access to some of the area’s best dining, shopping, entertainment and cultural destinations. Between local bus and train lines, highways and the city’s grid system, the Gold Coast offers plenty of options for getting around Chicagoland. It’s also so close to downtown that you can minimize the pain of long commutes or heavy traffic. In other words, when you make your home in one of the luxury apartment rentals currently available in Chicago’s Gold Coast, you’re in the heart of everything the city has to offer.
Whether you have a car or choose to grab one of the city’s abundant taxis to get around, Chicago’s four major expressways can guide you in and around the city. At the same time, because the Gold Coast is just north of downtown, you may be able to skip a bad commute with easy access into the city. A cab ride downtown takes only five minutes and will typically cost you less than $10. Plus, because the city is organized on a grid system, it’s easy to navigate: the State/Madison intersection is the central point — with all addresses considered north, south, east or west of it, and every eight blocks are a mile.
Even without a car, you can travel throughout the city and its suburbs with public transportation. Take the Red or Brown Line to and from your Gold Coast apartment. Or, hop on a nearby bus to take you wherever you want to go.
When the weather’s nice and you feel like walking, the Gold Coast isn’t far from entertainment options as well as conveniences. Make the most of the neighborhood’s walkability and enjoy time outside. What’s more, the area has bike lanes and bike-rack parking available, so you can cycle to work or for exercise/recreation.
