Oak Street Beach

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by rbank on September 12, 2002

There are many great beaches in Chicago (the entire lakefront is public), but this one is definately the "hottest." Only go to this one if you don't mind looking at some amazing bodies.

The lake front in Chicago is all public, with jogging/biking paths running the whole way. Most of the people at this beach are very much in shape. It also has a great view of Navy Pier.

The easiest access to Oak Street Beach is either along the paths, if you are walking/biking, or on the Michigan Ave. bus, 151. There is a great underpass that goes under Lake Shore Drive and connects the beach. There are also a few restaurants only minutes away, if you need to get out of the sun.

If Oak St. Beach gets crowded or you need a change of venue, you can go north a few blocks to other beaches along the "Outer Drive."
