Chicago winters may be cold, but summer weekends at Hollywood Beach are hot
Hollywood Beach (the new name is actually Kathy Osterman Beach) is a popular beach for all Chicagoans, but the gays and their friends hang out on the south side of the beach (the right side). Most popular on Sundays during the summer, but you are always bound to find people here when the weather is warm.

    Chicago's Gay Riveria
    Beautiful gay beach with lakeside vistas, and beach volleyball! Greatest number of men on the beach on weekends/holidays - the crusiest time, good weekday college crowd, Has a bar at concession. A true banana hammock paradise.
