This is Chicago's most famous beach and the perfect place to relax and people watch. The beach is man-made and the sand is shipped in, but people here don't seem to care. Unfold the pool chair and soak in the view of Lake Michigan and the John Hancock building, as well as the avenue that bears the lake's name. A cafe has been added, and various vendor carts dot the bordering paths frequented by runners, bikers and bladers.
