Picture this: you’re visiting Chicago for the first time, and you decide to take it easy for an afternoon at the beach with a group of pals. You’re immediately welcomed by a violinist as you emerge from the tunnel joining the sidewalk and the sand. You’ve got a Truly in hand while you sunbathe and watch a riveting match of volleyball as the scent of sunscreen consumes you. I will warn you that this is NOT a nude beach, but still, 10/10 would recommend.
Only had one experience but it was disappointing. Bartender did not understand when I requested a margarita with seltzer instead of sour mix. I ended up with tequila, which was Casamigos, lovely, and hard to say what else was in the glass. But it wasn't a margarita. That and a Corona was $30. You may have better results, we did not go back.
Beautiful beach at lake of Michigan. Small but Clean . Very nice view . Can get chair balls , net on rent . In good weather very crowded. But still nice place for walk along beach . N I think it’s safe place . Easy access from magnificent mile. Highly recommended
Great public beach and usually a good police presence during the weekends which makes things safe. The water here tends to be more rough than other beaches which I like. it is a bit smaller and can't get cramped but the views are spectacular of the surrounding buildings. This beach is really close to Water Tower and the Gold Coast and there are great food options nearby. Parking is available at local private Lots and there is bus service nearby.
The water looks great. The view of the Centennial wheel at Navy Pier is breathtaking. There's little sand where one can sit and spend time, have a picnic or play volleyball. There's really not much to see here. The place seems isolated and unsafe. The subway leading to this beach is almost always isolated. There are running and biking trails along the beach which is what people do there the most. It's however, not at all neat. While we were there in April this year, it was still daytime and there were people around, and all of a sudden, someone from a passing vehicle threw an empty champagne bottle at us. It was scary, so we took off. Be careful when visiting this place.
