North Avenue Beach

Map
1600 N. Lake Shore Dr., Chicago, IL 60614, United States

After the chilly Windy City winter has run its course, North Avenue Beach is one of the city’s best spots to celebrate the summer sun. Managed by the Chicago Park District, this bustling beach is packed from Memorial Day to Labor Day with families, singles and exuberant groups of young partiers. Visitors can splash around in the shallows of Lake Michigan, bike along the beachfront path, play volleyball, or simply enjoy watching the city at play. The beach house, built like an enormous ship, offers concessions and a general store on the bottom level and Castaways, a tropical bar and grill, on the top level.
