The Run Down
During the summer, Rogers Park can feel like a mini-beach town if you know the right spots to visit. For this guide, we've got an afternoon beach trip all planned out. You'll start at a beach side cafe for slushies and then walk 10 feet to find a spot on the sand. Once you've got enough sun and beach, you'll make your way 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. You'll end the day there with a post-beach meal of ice cream, sandwiches, and coffee.
