  • I consider Lake Michigan the Seine of Chicago. This roadway along the Lake is a heart pulse on weekends in particular, with walkers, bikers, runners all out in gala form. Wonderful "chill."  more »
  • I went for a long walk along here on a very cold January morning and I just loved it. The lake was frozen over and I got to see some guys ice fishing which is something I would never see at home in Au...  more »
  • I don't think a trip to Chicago is complete without a trip along the lake shore. I've walked and run along in the summer and winter. I've seen it frozen in the winter and enjoyed the "beach" atmospher...  more »

  • I run or ride here very often. I've ran here many times, before i moved to Chicago as a visitor. It never gets boring, seeing the beautiful Lakefront trail. Definitely 5 Stars!
  • Utterly calming trail for bikers as well as for walk. You can go for a segway tour or rent a family bike(2-4 seater) or also there are awesome 3 tire bicycles. This trail starts few yards away from millennium park and connects you to Navy Pier. Would advise a walk to navy pier through this lakefront trail.
  • Great bike and running trail along the lakefront. Gets crowded on the weekends and during the afternoon commute especially near the Loop. Don't skip on the southern part which I prefer for riding as there are fewer people and vehicle crossings.
  • I went biking with my family here, It was great. You get everything when you come here; your great Chicago views, great ocean views, awesome lush green scenery and more. I would say that this is a must go if you are visiting Chicago.
  • Super cool place to visit and take great pics and have lunch on the grass. Beach is right around the corner. Alder planetarium is a pokemon go hangout lol great for the kids. I love it!!
