Spring has sprung. With warmer weather around the corner, Chicagoans will be looking to make up for lost time and take advantage of all the endless outdoor activities that the city has to offer. With the Chicago River, Lake Michigan, and green spaces just steps away from The St. Regis Chicago, there’s no need to go too far to let your inner adventurer play.  

If you’ve been practicing your swing in The St. Regis Chicago’s indoor golf simulator, you’re probably ready to hit the greens. One of the city’s most iconic courses, the Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course (3701 N. Recreation Drive), sits right on Lake Michigan and has unparalleled views of the water and the Chicago skyline. The nine holes of the course are all oriented parallel to the lake and are home to mature trees and immaculate greens ready to challenge players of all skill levels.

While playing a golf game near the lake, it might make you envious of everyone on the lake. There’s no need to invest in your own water vessel when you have access to a smart ownership alternative like Pinnacle Yachts. Established in 1998, the shared-yacht operation provides members with access to 30 yachts hailing from five nearby harbors. Members can enjoy all the benefits of yacht ownerships without the hassle of maintaining their vessels year round. Pinnacle Yacht memberships sell out prior to each season year after year so early registration is highly recommended.

The shining sun also gives you the perfect opportunity to step away from your Peloton and go out for a ride on the Chicago Lakeshore Bike Trail. The Lakefront Trail is an 18.5-mile paved path that follows the Lake Michigan shoreline. It extends from Ardmore Ave. (5800 N. Sheridan Rd) on the North Side to 71st St. (7100 S. South Shore Drive) on the South Side, going through numerous lakefront neighborhoods, including Edgewater, Uptown, Lakeview, Lincoln Park, South Loop, Bronzeville, and Hyde Park.

After you’ve had your adrenaline pumping on the Chicago lakefront bike path, it’s always nice to come home and relax. We suggest making your way over to The Residences at The St. Regis Chicago’s tranquil oasis. Visit our site to learn more about the many things to do in Chicago in spring.
