The city of Chicago is located on the south western tip of Lake Michigan. The Chicago Lakefront Trail (LFT) is an 18-mile (29 km) multi-use path in Chicago, Illinois along the coast of Lake Michigan. The path connects various beaches and recreational amenities located along the lake front and also serves as an option to bicycle commuters. It is a great place to stroll, jog or bike specially in the Summer. The views of Lake Michigan are breathtaking.
Some of the popular attractions along the path are the Museum of Science and Industry, McCormick Place, Soldier Field, Chicago’s Museum Campus, Monroe Harbor, Navy Pier, Belmont Harbor, the Waveland Clock Tower, and most of the Chicago beaches. Lake Shore Drive runs adjacent to a large portion of Chicago’s lakefront. Some of the parks along the waterfront include Lincoln Park, Grant Park, Burnham Park and Jackson Park. Grant Park holds Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
