A mong fascinating spots Paula Fricke has visited worldwide, she rates Chicago high on her list — especially in warm weather and especially if she has time to hop on a bike. Pedaling the Chicago Lakefront Trail, an 18-mile paved path along Lake Michigan that also attracts walkers and runners, is her favorite activity. "I don't know any other city that has such a long, popular and gorgeous trail," says Fricke, who has family in Chicago and lives near Ballantyne. "You have lakefront on one side and the city skyline on the other side, the entire way. It's beautiful." This aerial shows the city's splendor along Lake Michigan and the Chicago River.
