The Top 25 Things to Do on Chicago’s Lakefront – PPM Chicago Apartments Blog

Chicago summers offer endless ways to have fun on Chicago’s lakefront.  And with warm weather in full swing (fingers crossed), plus all of our Chicago apartments close to the lake, we felt it would be a perfect time to outline some of our favorite things to do on the lakefront.  Here’s the top 25 (in no particular order):
