One of the best places in the US. Chicago is an amazing place to visit. North Shore is beautiful in the summer.

First visit to Chicago and had to see Lake Michigan. The beach was beautiful, clean and had attentive lifeguards. Enjoyed some time swimming and sitting on the beach. Great way to cool off after walking through the zoo and over elevated crosswalk to the beach area. Also saw lots of snack/food options as well as bike rentals, and jet ski rentals. Good place to visit for all ages

Nice beach with a pedestrian bridge that takes you to Lincoln Park Zoo. The parking lot at the Zoo is expensive. $35 for 5 hours but the zoo is no charge.
