The 31st street beach is a nice lake beach. Clean and well staffed with decent facilities. The lifeguards are very attentive (almost overly so, but I respect that) and plentiful. Nearby is a very well done playground for when the kids are beached out. Note: bring chairs and shelter/umbrellas as there were none for rent. Lastly, that view!
i brought my 15 year old daughter and 19 year old nephew and rented a 2 person jetski for me and my daughter,and a single person for my nephew. It was the BEST thing we've ever done in the city! And we've been to every tourist attraction in Chicago! Alex made sure we were comfortable and in control before he... 更多
We wanted a day at the beach and this place was recommended. We were lucky to find parking as son as we pulled in. The beach free more crowded as the day went on. Plenty of sites to see.

The water was freezing so we didn't do much swimming despite the temperatures being in the 90s. The beach... 更多
There isn't room for more than 20-30 cars in the parking lot. Parking costs are $1/hour on weekdays & $2/ hour on weekends. But, once we got settled we were pleased! the view is beautiful. The water, the boats, & the skyline backdrop are all fantastic! The beach is pretty clean, so we weren't afraid to get our toes in... 更多
Parking is a nightmare if you don't get there early. Very limited parking. We had a family cookout near the beach. It was a really good day. The weather was perfect, the water was nice. There was live music at the concession stand.
31st street beach is one of the many places from where you can get a great view of the Chicago skyline. Its a great place to spend a Sunday evening during summer.
The facilities have improved, better with spider control in 2014. Still no safety ladders on the docks. Had my bike... 更多
31st Street Harbor is located right next to 31st Street Beach and the two worlds couldn't be more different. During... 更多
