  • Huge, clean, family-friendly beach on the north side. More family oriented than north avenue beach. Great lake front access with smaller crowds.
  • Great beach, might be my favorite in Chicago. I would have liked to see some food trucks there though. Also has a fenced in dog park on the beach
  • Great beach & park. Many running events are held here. Parking is usually not a problem. They have free parking and pay lots.
  • Really nothing bad to say. Beautiful manmade beach on the lake. Lots of family and friends bbq'ing in the grassy areas. A must visit for any tourist in Chicago if the weather is nice.
  • Great for runs and hangout on a beautiful day. I prefer the weekdays as to avoid tourist. We usually take Belmont harbor trail and walk North to Montrose Beach, amazing. I recommend it.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
