What To Expect

On busy summer weekends, Oak Street Beach is packed with the blankets and swim gear of up to 300,000 Chicagoans. Pop-up bars, volleyball nets, and easy-access to downtown make this one of Chicago’s finest sandy spots.

The sprawling Lakefront Trail is an 18-mile, paved bike and walking path that straddles the shore of Lake Michigan, and connects the Windy City’s north and south side neighborhoods.

The Lincoln Statue is located in Lincoln Park, adjacent to the Chicago History Museum. It was designed by Augustus St. Gaudens, who used a plaster mold of Lincoln’s actual face to create the statue’s head.

The Kissing Bridge is named such for all of the wedding photos taken with its beautiful skyline backdrop. It is a beautiful place to view Lincoln Park, The John Hancock Center, and the zoo’s camels!

The Lincoln Park Zoo is free for all to enjoy and is home to hundreds of beautiful animals from all over the world including lions, tigers, penguins, reptiles, gorillas, and camels.

Bobby’s Secret Garden, the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, is one of Chicago’s best kept secret: a peaceful oasis full of lily ponds, natural wildlife, and rare quiet. Time permitting.

North Avenue Beach is one of the Windy City’s most popular public beaches. It features white sand, kayak and jet-ski rentals, bars, restaurants, and the clear, freshwater of the great Lake Michigan.

What Our Customers Are Saying“I was immediately impressed with the care that was taken to match us up with appropriate sized bikes/helmets and explain to us what we would be doing and how to ensure safety along the way. The bike ride along the lake shore was absolutely beautiful and the education and fun facts that were intermixed provided a great balance that all of us enjoyed.”
