I was just thinking to myself during the last time it was snowing, I’d really love to be able to go to a beach in Chicago right now… Well, now you and I can! Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced that, for the first time since March of last year, Chicago’s lakefront has been reopened.
Chicago: your Lakefront access has been restored.
Here’s video of me driving through Montrose Harbor, which officially has been closed since the spring. (And more recently used as a snow dumping ground.)

That likely bodes well for the annual Polar Bear Plunge! While that event will officially be virtual (taking place from March 1st – 7th), it won’t need to be done in a bathtub full of ice cubes!
Even better, keep those beaches open into the summer!!!
