In warmer months, it’s possible to kayak or canoe on Lake Michigan, with boat rentals available right downtown. More passive passengers can opt for a sail or a ride on a traditional schooner, or go for the luxury experience with a lunch, brunch, dinner or sunset cruise on an elegant multilevel ship with indoor and outdoor space and seating for up to 600 people. These cruises often include dancing, entertainment and drinks.
Back along the Lake Michigan shoreline, there’s a beach for every taste. On the north side, Montrose Beach is laid-back and dog friendly, while in Lincoln Park, North Avenue beach is the place to be seen and hang out with friends. There’s even a beach right downtown at Oak Street, which is the perfect spot to watch the Air and Water Show that takes place on and over the lake each August.
