The Run Down
During the summer, Rogers Park can feel like a mini-beach town if you know the right spots to visit. We've got an afternoon beach trip planned for this guide. You'll start at a beachside cafe for slushies and walk 10 feet to find a spot on the sand. Once you've got enough sun and beach, you'll go through a quiet lakeside residential neighborhood until you come upon a small enclave of shops and cafes that give off strong small town beach vibes. There, you'll end the day with a post-beach meal of ice cream, sandwiches, and coffee.
