Every Sunday, during the spring and summer, my wife and I make it a point to walk along Chicago's beautiful lakefront from Fullerton Avenue to Oak Street Beach, sometimes as far as Navy Pier. It is all part of the Chicago Lakefront Trail, an 18.5-mile-long path located along the western shore of Lake Michigan that is used for walking, jogging, cycling, scootering and skateboarding. From north to south, the trail passes through and connects Chicago's four major lakefront parks--Lincoln Park, Grant Park, Burnham Park and Jackson Park, from the Edgewater Beach neighborhood to South Shore. All along the way, you are afforded stunning views of Chicago's skyline. On busy summer days, as many as 70,000 people use the trail. In 1963, the trail was introduced as the city's first official bike path. Over the years, it grew in popularity and the path was widened to accommodate bike and foot traffic. Among the major attractions along the path are Lincoln Park Zoo, Navy Pier, Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium and Museum of Science and Industry. Also Belmont Harbor, Monroe Harbor and Soldier Field.

We spent a couple of hours riding rented bikes on the lakefront trail on a beautiful September afternoon. There was quite a bit of traffic on the trail but it was not crowded or dangerous. You had great views of the lake on one side and great views of the city on the other. The path goes through several parks and provides excellent views of a big swath of Chicago. Lots of fun!
