You'll have lots of room on the shoreline to soak up some sun.

No matter what you are in search of, we have it. You can't miss out—Chicago was one of the world's foremost beach spots last year. We feature hundreds of Chicago beach hotels on our site, and you'll find the best conveniences like shampoos to rinse away the grains.
