The Polar Vortex of 2019 is officially over, and the lovely citizens of Chicago are happily defrosting, stashing their winter coats, and getting ready for the long sweltering summer.

As spring turns into summer, this a great time to visit Chicago, and many first-timers are surprised to see all the beautiful beaches along the shores of Lake Michigan. Long before the city was built, the lake was surrounded by natural sand dunes, and that sand is powdery soft, perfect for playing volleyball or just laying out for some sun. The gay beach is at Kathy Osterman Beach, also known as Hollywood Beach, just a little bit north of the famous Boystown neighborhood. (The gay section is on the south end: just look for the rainbow on the jetty.) The water is definitely chilly, but on a hot summer day it’s perfect for a refreshing dip.

Here are some great photos of Kathy Osterman Beach that show how Chicago knows how to have fun in the sun…
