Our bicycle tour starts out where else. CHICAGO! We begin our ride together past some of the most memorable of Chicago sites: Buckingham Fountain, Cloud Gate in Millennium Park and the Navy Pier.
As we leave The Windy City we ride through Chicago's Gold Coast, Lincoln Park and Belmont Harbour. Riding north we experience Beaches, Loyola University, Northwestern University, the beautiful homes of the area and finally the City of Kenosha.
Our first night is in the lovely Town of Kenosha at the Harbor Side Inn. Surrounded by history, shopping and parks this is a place never to be forgotten.
As we leave Kenosha's two candy-striped pier head lights, the 1886 Southport Lighthouse and the $1 Electric Streetcar, we head towards Racine offering us a lovely downtown with a Trolley, 1880 Wind Point Lighthouse (one of the tallest on the Great Lakes).
Next up is Milwaukee, a destination itself with attractions such as the Pabst Mansion, Discovery World and the Basilica of St. Josaphat. Milwaukee is time well spent with its restaurants, night life, shopping and history.
After a 100 miles and a full day in Milwaukee, we depart south for the beach. We reminisce on the days prior as we pass through towns we adore so much. On to Waukegan where we tuck into Illinois State Beach State Park to the Illinois Beach Resort. This resort is nestled into the park with acres of Greenland and beach. Once we all have settled in, it's time for a beach gathering. We group together for some relaxing, storytelling and fun. Toast to a great day, enjoy the views and time spent with new friends! This is well worth the miles under our belt!!
Our final day is as breath-taking as all with the amazing Chicago Skyline in our sights. We ride along the beaches and towns while taking time for places of dreams. Have your cameras ready on this home stretch as you'll want to share this 4 day experience with all.
