Chicago is lucky enough to sit on the shore of this wonderful lake. There are "bike share racks" along the shore that make for great transportation alternatives to the car. They're great for a relaxing ride along the shore, and perfect because you'll be able to stop at will for pictures or strolls on the beaches. Stop at one of the piers, have a lemonade or a beer, and watch the boats pull in and out of the marina. Or, if you're more of an adventurer, you can actually scuba dive.
