Tips

  • Catch some rays and some hotties! Use protection!
  • Head to the Magnificent Mile for lunch or dinner after a day at the beach; it's literally less than a hundred paces away.
  • Be sure to use sunscreen at the beach.
  • Terrible parking but BEST place to enjoy the Air & Water Show....
  • TV chef-lebrity Dale Levitskis behind Hotel Thrillists bar on 7/28 1-4p -- let him mix you a drank!
  • Perfect spot for a run during the mornings in the summer!
  • Oak Street beach in the summer is a great place to sun bathe, dip in Lake Michigan and people watch. You can even run, bike or walk along the entire lake front path for miles. - Nikki
  • Crowded, but a good beach that's close to Navy Pier!
  • This is less crowded than North Avenue Beach. It is fantastic for people watching and sometimes even boat watching.
  • Less beach space than north ave but a better, less drunk crowd and still a great time!
  • Around here on Lakeshore Drive 92.3FM battles for music station strength.
  • DONT GET IN THE WATER
  • Grab a Chicago style hot dog at the beach cafe in the summer. Chill along Lake Michigan. Bike, rollerblade and run on the paths along Lake Shore Drive. Right near the heart of downtown. A great spot!
  • A sophisticated and upscale beach experience
  • So freaking pretty.
  • Less guidos = more fun. A nice alternative to the suburb saturated North Ave Beach.
  • see the air and water show
  • Great beach for the AVP tournament
  • Best view
  • Family fun at this beach! Beautiful atmosphere and safe environment! Clean beach and easy to get too :)
