Behold the majestic lakefront path, an 18 mile stretch of parks, beaches, attractions, skyskrapers, and joggers & cyclists, just down the street from our hostel. Whether you use it for biking, hiking, photographing, or a morning run, this aesthetic stretch will dazzle and not disappoint.
Beach season has finally bestowed itself upon our city once again, take advantage of these great locations…
North Ave. Beach is one of the city’s most popular sunny summer spots. This beach also offers a fair share of lakeside amenities: a restaurant/snack bar, chess, volleyball, as well as the popular Castaways Beach Bar. Better yet, this beach is within walking distance of our hostel.

Half Day (3 hrs or less)- $20.00
