Oak Street Beach is located along the shore of Lake Michigan just east and north of the Miracle Mile on Michigan Avenue. It features a south ledge approximately a mile long with shallow water, a large sand beach in the middle opposite the Drake Hotel and a north ledge with much deeper water and excellent swimming conditions. The views from the north ledge are stunning- the downtown skyline, the Gold Coast residences, and the lake itself. The sand beach can get crowded on a warm day and the north ledge is typically quieter and better for swimming. There is great people watching as well. The path beyond the beach tends to be very busy with bikers, skaters and runners, so paying attention to traffic and your children is a must. If you are a runner or walker, there are few better venues than the two and one half mile trek from North Avenue to Ohio Street along the shore.
