City by the shore
Admissions? Call you? Maybe?
The city of Chicago has always been into swimming. And we’re very proud of the UChicago Swimming and Diving teams (Men’s and Women’s). And Lake Michigan is beckoning us with it’s crispy cool water. So we present—Call Me Maybe by the US Olympic Swim Team. I’ve heard they’re pretty good. They have someone called Phelps and someone called Lochte, I’ve heard they go pretty fast.
We love the Point because: it’s right on Lake Michigan, you can see the city skyline, it’s always full of families and cute dogs, doing your homework outside is so much more fun than doing it inside, and you can sunbathe there. But mainly, lake.
The best part about living so close to Lake Michigan? You can ride along it.
UChicago is about 7.5 miles from downtown Chicago - a bikeable distance, made even better by the fact that on weekends and at non-peak times, you can take your bike on the CTA. Ride up, bus back!
A weekend was spent fast asleep, recovering from the early mornings of Kuvia. But do we regret it?
Not when we got to salute the sunrise at Promotionary Point, we don’t.
