Living in Lakeshore East puts the Chicago waterfront steps from your door.

With twenty-nine miles of lakefront paths, Chicago is considered one of the world’s most walkable cities. Walk, run, bike or picnic along Lake Michigan in one of the many beautiful lakeside parks or beaches off the path.

Boasting one of the best views in the city, there are plenty of spots to relax while gazing at the magnificent horizon or the multitudes of bikers, runners, walkers and rollerbladers streaming down the Chicago lakefront paths.

Also located on the Chicago waterfront, Oak Street Beach is home to the largest area of deep water swimming in the city and is training grounds for hundreds of triathletes and distance swimmers. If swimming is not your forte, the north ledge is home to sunbathers, runners, skaters and bikers. With its proximity to downtown and the popular Oak Street Bistro, this beach boasts thousands of visitors each day during the summer months.

Running along the south bank of the Chicago River, from Lake Shore Drive to Franklin Street, the Riverwalk features public walkways and seating areas along the waterfront’s edge, attractions such as cafes, boat cruises, water taxis, bike rentals and tours, and crafts made by local artisans.
