What people are saying:

Nice and clean beach, not crowded, close to downtown. It doesn't have too many food options, it is more a place to just read a book and relax..

    Very nice urban beach

    I was actually surprised by how nice this lakefront beach was, considering its relative proximity to the Loop. Lots of people were playing volleyball at the nets, and plenty more were sunbathing or sw...

    Great location

    We stayed at the drake and this beach was across the street and nice. Rented chairs and umbrella for $40. Also had a snack shack with food and drinks that took credit.

Additional Information


This is Chicago's most famous area of sand or small stones at the edge of the sea and the perfect place to relax and people watch. The area of sand or small stones at the edge of the sea is man-made and the sand is shipped in, but people here do not seem to care. Unfold the pool chair and soak in the view of Lake Michigan and the John Hancock building, as well as the avenue that have an influence or effect on something the large area of water surrounded by land's name. A cafe has been added, and someone who sells something, especially on the street carts dot the bordering paths frequented by runners, bikers and bladers.
