Ease yourself into the day with shrimp and grits and a signature Bloody Mary at local favorite, The Monkey’s Paw, close by your student housing. Head up to Montrose Beach for a game of volleyball, or rent a kayak and take to the water. In the afternoon, make your way to Lincoln Park and visit the zoo, or check out the exhibits at the Chicago History Museum. Alternatively, relax on the grass and enjoy incredible views of your city. As night falls, join friends at Taqueria and Bar for margaritas then head over to Pequod’s Pizza to sample some authentic Chicago deep dish.
Set your alarm late at Ion Lincoln Park, as you’re only a seven-minute walk from DePaul University. Alternatively, make the most of the extra time with a morning workout in the fitness area then refuel with some breakfast in your kitchen. Print any notes you need for class on the way out at the new printer in the lobby.
When you arrive home from university, send your washing to be sorted with the on-site dry cleaning and laundry service. Head down to the living room area to watch TV with your fellow students, or chill out by yourself in front of your favorite show in your bedroom. Next, make the most of the high-speed internet and Skype family back home as you relax on your comfortable sofa. Finish off any studying at the desk and chair provided in your room.
When you’re ready to eat, pick up something easy and heat it up in your microwave or buy fresh produce from Lincoln Park Farmers’ Market and whip up something tasty on your hob. You can eat in comfort at the cool bar stools on your kitchen island. When you’ve had a long day, swing by Knife and Tine and let someone else do the cooking - try the fried chicken and butter biscuits.
It’s easy to manage your money because all utilities are included at Ion Lincoln Park. If you need to head out late in the evenings, take advantage of the escort service for students who need to travel around campus alone during unsociable hours. There is a 24-hour doorman for additional peace of mind.
