Often referred to 31st Street Beach, Margaret T. Burroughs Beach offers visitors incredible views of the Chicago skyline from the south. Beach goers can find concessions and restrooms at the beach house. Burroughs Beach sits next 31st Street Harbor, a new facility that offers 1,000 floating slips…

The 31st Street Beach is a half mile walk from the Calumet Air BnB. It's a lifeguard-staffed beach, pier and harbor with a restaurant and open-air bar.

Great place to visit!! You can relax on the beach, bike ride along the trail, take the kids to the playground, or visit the harbor for drinks!!
