Yes. This is the beach of all beaches in Chicago—a perfect view, plenty of sun and lots of friendly faces. Sometimes a few too many, so be sure to stake out space for a towel or two early.
This is the beach to go to if you want to see and be seen. It's also got an unparalleled view of the Chicago skyline, as it's basically in the heart of it all. It's a great beach to take a stroll on the pier. Just note: it gets super packed.
DO NOT MISS the Chicago Air&Water Show!
There are huge crowds on Sat. & Sun., so here's a Chicago secret: you can see almost the same show on Friday, when all the planes rehearse - but, without the 1.5M people each day on the lakefront. Take the afternoon off!
If you don't mind huge crowds, you may find yourself going BOTH days - Sat. & Sun., the event is that great!!
