After you're done checking out Jackson Park, head towards the lake the check out the Lakefront Trail, which runs 18 miles along the coast of Lake Michigan. Head north towards downtown, and take a detour anytime you see something you want to check out. Bike rentals can be found near the lakefront and are essential for most people to do the entire trail in one day.

On warm, sunny days, the Lakefront Path is packed with tourists and locals alike. If you're a biker, runner, or roller skater, you're going to want to hit this path with your gear. If you're not, get ready for some great people watching. Either way, prepare yourself for the best views in Chicago.

One of my favorite places to run in this city. With a path that is over 15 miles long north to south, it is hard to get lost for anyone who likes to zone out on a morning run.
There are lots of different beaches that run along the path, highlighting some of Chicago's best features. If you aren't a fan of the sand, there are also many harbors you can go on boat tours or find a friend for the weekend and hang out with them (Chicagoans are friendly, so be open and you might find yourself on an unexpected adventure)

Gorgeous views of the city and. You could almost trick yourself into thinking you are oceanside. This path is my favorite place to run in the United States. Nice, long and stunningly gorgeous (in good weather).

Walking along the lake is one of my favorite places to take a visitor, regardless of the time of year. Great place to ride a bike, walk a dog, go for a jog or hold hands with your sweetie. There are endless photo opportunities with the peaceful and calming water that feels so far from (and yet so close to) downtown.

I used to rollerblade along the beach when I was a kid. The view is outstanding, and there are about a hundred hot dog carts and others along the way.Recommended for:Family Travelers

There are 17 miles of path going from about 7000 S to 5800 N. Water fountains are rarely more than a mile apart, and I've never had a problem running on this path at any time of day, including very late at night. There's lots to explore off the path.

Great place to go for a run, the path along Lake Michigan seems to go forever. While running, you can see the towers and during the warmer months, the beaches that get set up along the lakeshore.

Is Chicago's lakefront path the definition of shooting the breeze? Well, it's good for strolling, jogging, roller blading or biking. It's good for dogs, and it's good for eating ice cream. It's good for turning around and breathing in the awesome view of Chicago (and that hotel from Mission Impossible). ;)
