We went to this beach after walking around Lincoln Park Zoo. It gets pretty busy on a sunny day but we managed to find some open spots to lay out by walking further down the beach. There’s restaurants and bars but no alcohol on the beach.

This is a well-situated beach with amazing city views. I'm not much of beach-goer, more of a walk across the beach type. This is a relaxing place.

This is a nice beach with a bar/restaurant. On nice days it can get pretty crowded(air and water show).

Use to take the bus back in the 70's to this beach and it was terrible back then but now it is a very good beach that is clean with plenty to do nearby.
