I took this photo on Memorial Day (May 28th) this year. Yes, the lakefront was at its most crowded. It’s kind of surreal to see some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers looming over a sandy beach, but the nice thing is that you can go from city to shore in just a few minutes. Oak Street Beach can seen in the distance, which is where most of the tourists go since it’s right downtown. But I actually really like it because they rent lounge chairs, have great DJs on the weekends, and three nice bars where you can get your drink on, and a burger if you’re hungry.
