Enjoy the cozy confines of neighborhood life just steps from Belmont Harbor in an apartment at Melrose Shores. For a quick meal to bring back to your apartment, check out Joy’s Noodles & Rice for tasty Thai fare or Brazilian Bowl Grill for a gigantic meal. Walk around the corner to browse the eclectic shelves at Unabridged Bookstore, then pop into Paciugo ice cream shop for a scoop of homemade gelato as you flip through your new book. When the sun goes down, meet a friend at DryHop Brewers gastropub, before jumping on the nearby subway line to explore the city.

From your apartment at Melrose Shores, public transportation is very accessible with a nearby subway stop serving the Red, Brown and Purple Lines. Head out the door of your building and be on the train in less than 15 minutes. You can also reach a bus stop less than a block away.

Start your day in your new home by finishing up your assignments for your lectures and catching up on your emails. Make a light breakfast in your kitchen, place your dirty plates in the dishwater, and grab a coffee on the way to the subway. Whether you have early or late classes, riding public transit makes it easy to go back and forth to campus. If you like to bike, you can pedal to school in 10 minutes, and explore the park trails along nearby Lake Michigan in your free time.

You have your choice of two excellent grocery stores within walking distance, so keeping your cabinets stocked will be a breeze. Head out to Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s when supplies are running low. After you come back and unload your groceries, open your sliding doors from your living room with hardwood floors and kick back on your spacious balcony with a tasty snack.

When you have an open afternoon on the weekend, pick out a new look from your spacious closet in your bedroom. You can keep your wardrobe looking fresh with an on-site laundry room. Then, head downstairs to the covered lot and hop in your car. Parking is available, so you can get out to run quick errands or explore the farther reaches of the city.
