Belmont to Montrose Professional Review and Guide
"Chicago’s lakefront becomes more interesting as you go north. Starting at Belmont Harbor, there are twists and turns, paisley-shaped harbors, and crescent-curved beaches. In some parts the shore is far enough from Lake Shore Dr. that traffic noises fade, and on a quiet day you may hear only birds and the lapping of tiny waves on the sand. Lake View is a checkerboard of varied communities; on this walk you’ll see neighborhoods popular with the young and partying as well as the filthy rich. And just to remind you that all good things must come to an end, it finishes at the city’s last word in final resting places."
