What’s summer without at least one trip to the beach, where Lake Michigan’s waves will quickly cool you off? Pack your beach bag and head out to one of Evanston’s five public swimming beaches, where you can rent kayaks, stand up paddleboards, and sail boats (or you can simply relax in the sand and soak up the sun). Glencoe Beach (55 Hazel Ave.) is another hot spot come summertime, thanks to amenities like paddleboard, kayak, sailboat, and chairs/umbrellas rentals; a spray ground for kids; a shaded trellis and sun shelters; volleyball courts; a beach cafe; and more. Or, make your way to one of Winnetka’s three beaches, some of which feature playgrounds and sand volleyball courts. And don’t forget your furry friends, who can also enjoy a day in the sand at Centennial Dog Beach (225 Sheridan Road, Winnetka).
