  • This park is at the end of the peninsula on Solidarity drive. There is pay parking, a beach, a food stand, and Adler Planetarium. The old airport terminal is a welcome center with restrooms. The harbo...  read more »

  • Lucky to have had a beautiful night to enjoy such an amazing artist. The seats aren't the most comfortable at this place, and the beer vendors are a bit much, yet the sound us good, the vibe of the cr...  read more »
  • This is a fun outdoor concert venue. Most concerts here are general admission, but on occasion folding chairs are set up. Food and drinks are average (and pricy). VIP probably isn't worth the money, but there isn't a bad seat in the house. Considering it's an outdoor venue, there are always nice and clean mobile restrooms.
  • Beautiful place that really makes you feel removed from the city. The walking trail is beautiful and is surrounded by a natural and hilly landscape. Great place to spend about an hour!
  • Just the way Daniel Burham and other Chicago Planners envisoned in 1909. A great park for the people if Chicago and visitors.
  • Wish it was still an airport, but not a bad place to rollerblade or bike or run, with good views of the city. Beware the geese.
  • Great spot to explore either on foot or wheels! The improvements need some tweaking as the eastern part of the trail is closed because high wave events have deteriorated the trail. I guess that's why they put all those big boulders there in an attempt to protect it.... Need more rocks! They're fun to climb and enjoy the view.
