Lakeview Staycation Passports are Out Now!

Stop by our booth at our Dine Out Events to grab yours!
As local businesses continue to reopen in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know many folks are itching to get out and see something new but might not be comfortable traveling just yet.

With this in mind, the Lakeview East Chamber is launching a campaign for residents and visitors alike to experience their own “staycation” right here in the beautiful Lakeview East neighborhood!

Once you have your Staycation Passport, you’re ready to hit the neighborhood and start collecting signatures.

Simply present your coupons to the participating business of your choice, they’ll sign off on their Passport coupon, you’ll cash in on a great deal, and then be able to look back on all the small, local businesses you helped support during a time when they need it most.
Redesigned Peace Park at Clark & Racine
The Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce, SSA#17 and Lakeview East Community Partnership has adopted the Park at Clark/Racine. Patch Landscape recently re-designed the park for our residents and will re-open next week.

Please remember, as though we LOVE our furry friends, this is NOT a dog park and we ask that your pets are leashed and not dig up our new plantings. Please enjoy Peace Park, a gift to our community.

Hospitality & Tourism Summit Chicago 2021
The Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce will have a booth the Hospitality and Tourism Summit at Navy Pier on June 8th, 2021. We would love for you to stop by and visit us!
The market is reopening. Are you ready? Ask yourself:
  • Do you have a marketing plan for rebuilding your tourism, group, and events business?
  • Have you reconnected with hotel concierge and guest services professionals to attract more visitors?
  • Have you reached out to meeting and event planners to let them know you’re open and ready for hosting groups safely?
  • Given the city is opening up, can you count on simple word of mouth to attract the tourists and/or groups and private events to fill your expanded occupancy?

If you answered "no" to any of these questions, you need to exhibit at the 20th Annual Hospitality & Tourism Trade Show on June 8th in the Aon Grand Ballroom (and 4 adjacent spaces for social distancing) at Navy Pier.
