Fodor's Review

In the late 19th century, Madison Park was the most popular beach in the city, with a promenade, floating bandstands, gambling halls, and ship piers. Now it's a lakefront park with sloping lawns, a swimming area, playgrounds, and tennis courts. The whole area is usually bustling with activity—there are a number of upscale coffee shops, restaurants, and boutiques nearby. It may not be obvious at first, but this is where the city's old money runs deep. The beach has picnic tables, restrooms, and showers, and lifeguards on duty in summer, and the recently renovated children's playground is among the city's best. From Downtown, go east on Madison Street; it'll take you straight down to the lake.
