Fodor's Review

This scenic, man-made peninsula, which projects into Lake Michigan, opened in 1937 as part of Burnham Park. Entry is by tunnel underneath Lake Shore Drive at 55th Street or the Lakefront Trail. The fawn-shaped David Wallach Memorial Fountain is located near the tunnel. The park's field house is a popular wedding venue, so you may catch a glimpse of a beaming bride during your visit.
