South Shore Apartment Living

Neighborhood Vibe

Apartments in South Shore can connect renters to a vibrant and diverse community. Corner bars are often abuzz with live blues or jazz music; the beach in South Shore is as tranquil as any spot along Lake Michigan (but usually far less crowded); the University of Chicago is just a couple miles to the north, so it’s a popular spot for both students and university professionals looking to rent an affordable apartment outside of Hyde Park.

Heart of the Neighborhood

Apartment renters will discover a world of recreation and cultural diversions in the South Shore Cultural Center. This sprawling recreation complex includes a golf course, banquet hall, tennis courts, nature sanctuary and swimming beach. The main building’s Spanish-influenced architecture and coral pink facade make it an instantly recognizable landmark for renters in South Shore.

What We Love Most

Chicago skyline views from the neighborhood’s Rainbow Beach are a sight that every South Shore apartment renter should check out at some point. Stunning vistas are part of the neighborhood’s charm.

Best Way to Get Around

South Lake Shore Drive is also easily accessible from apartments in South Shore. And there are miles of bike-friendly trails and streets in South Shore as well.
