Walk the Lake­front. Chicagoans en­dure the frigid win­ters just so they can en­joy the fab­u­lous lake in sum­mer. Ditch the Viviers, slap on a hat and sunblock, and cab to the cnr of W Ar­mitage and N Clark / Lin­coln Park. Walk into the park and you’ll soon come to N Stock­ton. Bear right, then left at N Ridge, which goes over South Pond. Stop on the mini bridge and ad­mire the view down­town. Once you’ve crossed the pond, fol­low the road right (go­ing left will take you to the zoo) un­til you come to N Cannon, and con­tinue un­til you reach the over­pass, cross, then head right, to­ward the city for more down­town views. Fol­low the Lake­front Trail to Oak St Beach and take the un­der­pass, which leads you to for a cuppa cha, you star (see Coffee/palm Court). Cy­cle the Lake­front. Get your leg over and shed some pizza gut on a glo­ri­ous, easy stretch of Lake Michi­gan. Bike and Roll / four bike pick-up lo­ca­tions from Foster Beach to Mil­len­nium Park / 312 729 1000 / guided tours avail­able / bike chicago.com / also try Divvy Bikes (see V. Use­ful)
