Really gorgeous place, only saw a tiny amount but still fabulous. Lots of great things to see up and down the shoreline.

“Bikes to rent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

We were staying at the Drake Hotel so it was wonderful to see so many people enjoying Lake Michigan. The beach was clean and bikes were available for people to rent. My daugher enjoyed walking out in the sand for a fun photo.

“cooler near the lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

here is the main reason to live in chicago or in the area and as far east as possible. the lake is wonderful. great beaches, dunes to explore further north, but most of all it makes chicago summers perfect. sunning, swimming, playing volleyball. you can't beat it.

“Beautiful any time of year.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

We spend most of our summer beach-hopping in Chicago. Our favorite places are Loyola Beach, Albion Beach, Foster Beach, Montrose Harbor, and 31st Street Beach. Don't visit Chicago on a nice day without spending some time by the shore.

“Grew up on this lake ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Fond memories of being out of the house as a kid and hanging with my bff down at the lake. Beautiful view of the city. Love just people watching (always entertaining) and relaxing.
