  • If you are in the central area of Lake Shore Drive (LSD), you might enjoy visiting Milton Lee Olive Park, that is right across from LSD, and that gives you a great visual perspective and panoramic...

  • This is a public park, located near the Jane Addams Memorial Park on the way to Navy Piers. The park provides a great opportunity to sit and relax among the greenery, the trees, and the grassy areas.....  more

  • One of the most beautiful views of the lake with the skyline in the background. If you have never seen this, no matter where you live, ..go take a look. You will not be disappointed.... .....Also & MOST IMPORTANT...YES,MOST IMPORTANT...IF you get to Milton Lee Olive Park, you probably took Lake Shore Drive to get there..This highway, Lake Shore Drive runs from far north of downtown, (8 miles north of down town, to 7 miles south of downtown...Yes it is a total of maybe 18 miles in total.. to south 67st, to north Ridge Ave..So IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE INCREDIBLE LAKEFRONT OF CHICAGO RIDE THE ENTIRE DISTANCE FROM 67 ST ON SOUTH, TO THE END OF LAKE SHORE DRIVE ON THE NORTH..(5900 NORTH).. tHAT WILL TAKE AN HOUR TO AN HOUR AND HALF..(maybe less, maybe more).. To drive the entire lakefront (from North to South. maybe long, but you will see parks, and more parks, and beautiful backgrounds and views of the lake you would not see otherwise. Is that worth it?...It will give you a feeling about Chicago on the Lake that is otherwise difficult to explain and feel..... ......If crowded it may take 2 hours..maybe more & maybe less......But you will see why there is a Chicago and why the lakefront is so important to the city and its history.. entire lakefront is so important to the city.
  • Being a resident for 7 years in streeterville, a hidden spot known only by locals with amazing skyline views. Close to navy pier. Nothing else to do... but what else would you want with a view like this. Good dog park as well
