Beach: Michigan Ave & Oak St
Take Dearborn down to Oak Street and bank a right to the beach. Grab a margarita or a Mai Tai at the Oak Street Beach Food + Drink and then rest your feet in the waves. Don’t get too comfortable, there’s meat in your future: slow-roasted pork and pineapple pico de gallo Cabo Carnitas. Oh yes.
