Hollywood Beach heats up
Known as Hollywood Beach, this is a popular LGBTQ+ hang-out spot! Wonderful for catching a few rays, lounging on the sand, and having a picnic.

      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.

      Happy times at Hollywood
      I love to hang at Hollywood beach. It's a little farther north than where I live (I also go to Foster beach very often), but I love to be among and watch all the gorgeous boys when I can.

      Summer in Chicago!
      This beach is probably one of the cleanest beaches in Chicago. I hardly see garbage and everyone is pretty much friendly. Some regulars and some creepy people. Too bad our summers are only 2 months longs :-(

      LOTS to LOOK at!
      Any afternoon it's always busy. Fun for looking or cruising.

      Awesome !
      Been going to this beach regularly for 5 years. Very friendly crowd and lots of eye candy ! Sometimes there is some mild action, (touching, fondeling, kissing, sucking) but always in good taste. There are some regular families and straight copules there too, but the majority are gays. I recently discovered a website that has a webcam pointed at the beach. Check it out. The gay section is to the side by the pier. http://www.mykpod.com/chicago.shtml copy this and google it.

      I didn't know that!
      I live in Chicago and we never knew we had a gay beach anymore after they stoped us from going to the Belmont Harbour. The police do not like gays at the beach in Chicago.
