"A fun place to live with wonderful activities"

Rush Street is a very popular stretch of Chicago, Illinois. It has everything in a short radius. There are restaurants, shops, and what the street is best known for, amazing bars. The nightlife in this area is incredible and it seems as though there is always something fun to be doing. You can go out and get a great dinner and then drink the night away in nice bars. There are many ways to get around, though transportation is not always cheap (taxis charge quite a bit). However, if you live in the area or stay at a hotel, you can just walk. It is relatively safe, though there are some problems. These problems typically stem from people being intoxicated and not able to watch their surroundings. Chicago is a big city and you must remember to be wary. Otherwise, Rush Street is classy, fun, and a great place to live!

"Foot of Rush Street"

The main stem of the Chicago River has been crossed by four bridges at Rush Street. The first bridge was a floating bridge that was hinged to one bank.
Several prominent hotels are located on or bounded by Rush street.On the north side of Chicago Avenue Rush Street is part of the Gold Coast neighborhood of the Near North Side community area. The Gold Coast is the nation's second wealthiest neighborhood, trailing only the Central Park East neighborhood of Manhattan's Upper East Side.

"Great neighborhood, great nightlife"

Whenever myself or any of our friends celebrated our 21st birthdays, we would visit Rush Street in Chicago. It has wonderful nightlife and clubs from Mother's bar to Gilly's, where you can visit the club in the basement and may have a visit from Turbo from Breakin'!

"Busy, Crowded, Fun"

If you like restaurants, clubbing, crowds, fun, you will enjoy Rush Street. Clubs tend to be more in the nature of entertainment clubs rather than bars, and restaurants aren't so much fast food as they are good sit-down places. It's a short street, near Division, and of course it gets a lot of runoff from the Friday/Saturday night crowds looking to have fun. It can get pretty wild!
