Popular, iconic North Avenue Beach in Lincoln Park  is great for cycling, gorgeous city views and people-watching. The signature white-and-blue retro beach house resembles a beached ocean liner. You can rent kayaks,  jet skis and other water sports equipment, and watch international volleyball tournaments here. Try outdoor beach yoga or rent paddle boards. Be sure to arrive early to beat the crowds.

OAK STREET BEACH

Downtown’s Oak Street Beach is nearest to the hotel and a top spot for sunbathing among the palm trees. Swim, dine, watch the sun melt over the skyscrapers, rent beachcombers for an easygoing cycle and take in high-octane pro and amateur volleyball tournaments.
