Ride Along The Lakefront Trail

Is the summer heat keeping you inside your apartment? Do you think Chicago’s bustling city life means there aren’t many outdoor opportunities? Residents of OneEleven apartments in Chicago have plenty of options for outdoor fun during the summer. Grab your bike and let’s get moving!

From the front door of the OneEleven Apartments, it’s just over a mile to Chicago’s famous Lakefront Trail. The trail is 18 miles long and provides access to some of Chicago’s most famous landmarks. The cool breezes off Lake Michigan make for a comfortable ride on a hot day. As you head north, you’ll pass Navy Pier, Oak Street Beach, and Lincoln Park. A wide variety of museums provide air-conditioned stops for every interest. Pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic in the park or stop at the beach to cool off in the water.

Heading south offers incredible views of downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan. Stop at one of the many overlooks to get great pictures. Catch a game at Soldier Field or explore the Field Museum. On the trail, you’ll spend the day almost entirely in the shade of perfectly manicured parks and gardens. Meet some friends for a game of beach volleyball or grab a snack at one of the concession stands along the way. With so much to choose from, you’ll never get bored on the Lakefront Trail.

The OneEleven Apartments have incredible access to all the amenities of downtown Chicago. In the most bike-friendly city in the US, you won’t even need a car! Shopping, dining, and outdoor recreation are all right outside your door. Contact us to learn more about our luxury apartment community and life in downtown Chicago.
