We live in Evanston, IL which we think is a perfect location! The border to the south is the city of Chicago and the border to the east is Lake Michigan. The majority of the lakefront is open to the public with a walking trail, parks and beaches. We spend a lot of time there, all year round. The beginning of our walk always starts on the south end and we walk past two beaches, kayak and sailing racks and a playground.
The mid-point of our walk up the path brings us to a beautiful duck pond, the motorized boat launch and our favorite place on earth, the Dog Beach!
If we don’t stop at the dog beach (a decision we never agree with), we find ourselves on the beautiful Northwestern University campus. It has its own beach and sailing center as well as many spots to stop and enjoy the Chicago skyline.
If you ever find yourself in Evanston, we would love to show you all of our favorite places!
