Chicago Park District Beaches

Probably the crown jewel of the city’s scenery is its gorgeous lakefront. There are 26 miles of beaches along the lake on which you and your children can walk, rollerblade, play, and swim. Admission is free and the beaches are some of the best maintained public grounds in the country. Chicago is so cold in the winter that the locals are pretty much obligated to make the most of warm weather, so pack a picnic and enjoy a day in the sun.
