Friday marked the first official day of summer. Given the notoriously bleak weather that Chicago endures during the winter (and for a good part of spring), the city erupts with activity during the warm months, particularly along the lakefront. At hot spots like North Avenue Beach, from now until September you’ll find rollerbladers, cyclists, runners, and even the Trunk Club photo team.
To celebrate the arrival of summer, we’ve put together some outtake photos from both our recent swim-trunks post, as well as our upcoming July 4th editorial.
