This beach is great for LGBTQ guests. The beach has a great vibe, small restaurant, bathrooms, and some activities are available. This is the place to go if you want to be among the locals in the city.

One of my fave local beaches. Pretty quiet during week days. Hoppin' on the weekends. Has a bar, patio, and food stand. Also has paid parking and bathrooms. (Park a little farther south and go running/walking/biking on the lakefront trail!)
“If you stay on a Monday, Big Chick's dollar burgers are a MUST! Rex is the best waiter in town and will make you feel like family! Big Chick's is rated one of Chicago's BEST gay bars and is a welcome place for everyone! Be sure to snag a seat on one of their two patios on a nice day!”
