Our Chicago Apartments Offer the Perfect Lake Escapes

If you truly want to make the most of your Chicago summer, then keep these three tips in mind. 

  1. Visit the top Chicago beaches. Chicago is home to numerous lakefront beaches; however, Oak Street Beach, Oakwood Beach, and Rainbow Beach are three of the most popular options. Oak Street is a great sunbathing spot with spectacular views of the skyline. Rainbow Beach is part of a 60-acre park on the South Side. Oakwood Beach is a new addition that features outdoor festivals and concerts.
  2. Spend time on the lake from the comfort of a boat. Did you know that you can rent almost any type of boat for a day spent on the lake? Pontoon boats, sailboats, kayaks, and everything in between can be rented in Chicago from various vendors and retailers. If you don't want to play boat captain for a day, and you're over 21, then you can go on a "brew cruise," where you'll be able to enjoy the lake, while simultaneously sampling various beers from local breweries. 
  3. Take a dive below waters. The lake is home to more than a dozen lost ships. If you want to spend your summer diving deep, then you should contact one of the local diving companies for a guided underwater tour of the various shipwrecks that lurk beneath the lake's waters, including "Wings of Wind," a wooden schooner that sank in 1866.
