    This beach has something for everyone. If you just want to relax, you can soak up the sun and check out the great views of Chicago from the south end of the beach. If you want to be a little more active, there are beach volleyball courts, paddleboarding & jet ski rentals, or you can always run along the Lakeshore Path.

    Now that the weather is finally warmed up, you must head to the beach to take in the view of the skyline from North Avenue beach. The juxtaposition of the lake next to the city makes you feel that you're getting the best of both the bustling city life and a chilled out beachy vibe.

    Also, if you're into running, the paths here are perfect!

    Easily the most crowded beach in Chicago but it offers a full array of activities including beach volleyball, swimming, roller-hockey, checkers, and a bar for food and drinks.

    North Ave beach is pretty much the heart of the Chicago summer. Bring some drinks and be ready for volleyball, crowds, grilling, and chilling.
