Foster Beach is an easy "no-brainer" if you live on the North Side of Chicago. Easy access from Lake Shore Drive at Foster, parking lot and bus routes. Parking in the lot at the beach early weekdays is a snap (weekend mornings probably vary on events). There is a beach house with bathrooms and concessions.
The beach has usually been dragged and clean by the water when we get there and there is a great crowd for those with young kids. Grassy areas and sports fields are nearby. Volleyball posts are set up. Bring or rent a net.
Wheel Fun Rentals offers bikes, kayaks and volleyball equipment for rent.
And free WiFi at the beach.
