Mayor Daley took quite a bit of flak for taking over Meigs Field in the middle of the night a few years back, but his aquisition of Northerly Island and its' conversion into a beautiful greenspace and music venue is one of the best additions to Chicago's public park system in decades!

Now, Chicagoans and visitors alike can experience acres of native prairie plants and grasses in an exceptionally tranquil and serene setting, with the entire city as a backdrop. Park in the lot at the interpretive center, and you can walk or ride your bike through the museum campus and on to the lakefront trail, which stretches from the far north side of the city to the far south side.

During the warmer months, free trolleys connect Northerly Island to all the city's attractions, and you can also take a water taxi from the aquarium directly to Navy Pier and on to Union Station.

12th Street beach is ideal for a less-crowded swim, and the stage of the Charter One Pavilion is visible from the beach walk, meaning you can take in a show while yor toes are in the sand! When it comes to riding the city's lakefront, Northerly Island makes everything possible!
