Chicago lakefront beaches officially reopened

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.

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!!!
