Chicago beaches open today!!
I absolutely LOVE spending a Saturday afternoon hanging out at a lakefront beach. I like Montrose Beach since it's a less crowded, but there's much more eye candy and lively activity at North Avenue and Oak Street Beach. Either way, you can now get your beach on until September 5. (Although I'm such a wuss that I won't actually go in the water until August. Too cold!)
|Being unemployed last year sucked, but at least I had some nice beach days!|
Don't forget about Bike the Drive. Yes, I wussed out, but that doesn't mean you have to! (Note to self: maybe do something to prepare for a 30-mile ride...like actually get on a bike.)
And if you're looking for the perfect spot for a Memorial Day picnic, Time Out Chicago suggests these spots. I personally love Oz Park and North Pond in Lincoln Park.
