    Lake Michigan

    58 reviews

    Ahhh the lake...it is as much a part of the city as Sears Tower is. Come summer, much of the activity Chicago has surrounds the lake - whether it is the beach, the lakeshore path, the parks, the concerts...not to mention all the boats.

    A lovely place to spend the afternoon/evening. There are a few trails that, if you ignore the sounds of traffic on Lake Shore Drive, seem to teleport you out of the city and into a world of natural beauty.
