Useful information

Opening hours



In Chicago, over 30 sandy beaches lie on the shores of Lake Michigan, from the north to the south. Some, on the northern edge of the city, are no wider than a block of houses. Others have public baths, huts and various facilities. A few have nature trails, or tennis or volleyball courts. But if you were to test just one, then make it Oak Street Beach, where it is a joy to swim in the shadow of Drake Hotel.
