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.
Autumn is a beautiful & ideal time to visit Chicago. Here’s some reasons why….
The lakefront path is a picturesque playground you should be a part of this fall, whether biking, jogging, or walking it, we are sure it will be a memorable part of your Chicago experience. In addition, we rent bikes w/ locks: $20 for 3 hrs & $30 for the entire day.
As we are within walking distance to the lake, this summer is the season where you need to be LAKESIDE, whether at a beach, on the bike/running path….or how about dining……..?
Check out The Dock at Montrose Beach & their menu that boasts beachside compliments like kobe burgers, fish tacos, & tuna ceviche. Better yet, The Dock is newly revamped and now features a liquor license with about 20 different beers to choose from. This lakeside eatery is located north of Lincoln Park at Montrose & the lakefront.
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.
