It is official, the city has finally broken out of spring and we are now in the midst of summer. It is truly great to have clear skies and warm weather back in Chicago! With pools and many other public places opening up it is the beginning of getting things back to normal and it is time to take advantage of this.
A great place to start is Chicago’s public beaches. There are several great beaches that run all along lakeshore drive. If you are looking for a nice quiet beach where you are looking to get a nice tan and enjoy the refreshing water. Then you should try either Ohio Street Beach or Oak Street Beach. If you are looking to go to a beach that has good music and a lot of activities going on then you should try out North Ave beach. This beach is great for activities because they have many volleyball courts set up on the beach and they also have water activities as well. They provide jet ski and paddleboarding rentals at fairly reasonable prices. Here is the link for more information.
If you are looking to explore Chicago a little more there is a very cheap and fun way to go about that. Divvy bikes are a great way to explore Chicago and check out new and exciting places. They are also great if you just need to get around the city. The pricing for them and everything is done on your phone. With the Divvy bike, the first 30 min of the ride will be free.
There are also boat and kayak rentals in the Chicago river that you can rent for the day to ride up and down the river. There are also tours that you can take on the river and into the lake to both learn more about the city and see historic monuments. No matter what you are looking for, there is a good chance that Chicago has it.
