Beach holiday in Chicago? Why not? Chicago is best explored in a convertible. And don’t forget your swim gear. On Lake Michigan there are endless white sandy beaches to visit and enjoy over the summer. With daytime temperatures over 30 °C, the water of the lake offers welcome cooling. One of Chicago's most popular beaches is Oak Street Beach, which is only a few steps away from the nearest shopping centre, which also offers good car parking.
Especially during the spring break the beaches of Chicago are very popular. And there is lots of action, like beach volleyball and music, and people enjoying a stroll along the promenade. If you want to visit the more tranquil beaches, you should hire a car in Chicago. Remember, the shore of Lake Michigan is 2,300 km long, so a hire car is perfect for getting to the best places.
