North Avenue Beach is Chicago's busiest beach between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The beach gets very crowded and you'll see singles, couples, families and groups of friends. It is a fairly large, well-maintained beach with rentals available, including chairs, bikes and volleyball equipment (there are 50 or more volleyball courts). You'll see many runners, cyclists and inline skaters on the lake shore path, as well as an outdoor mini fitness center and roller hockey rink.
