Chicago Lakefront Trail

This 18.5 mile long trail along the coast of Lake Michigan is an outdoor delight that thousands of locals and tourists use every single day. You’ll find walkers, joggers, bikers, skateboards, and all types of pedestrians traveling along this well-paved path connecting Chicago’s four lakefront parks (Lincoln Park, Grant Park, Burnham Park, and Jackson Park).

The trail itself is worthy of visiting, but you’ll also find plenty of attractions throughout its course, including the South Shore Cultural Center, Museum of Science and Industry, McCormick Place, Soldier Field, Chicago’s Museum Campus, Monroe Harbor, Navy Pier, Belmont Harbor, and the Waveland Clock Tower.
