Featuring swimming, watersports and cafes, it’s now wonder Montrose is one of Chicago’s best known summer hangouts.
Adjacent to the beach is Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary, a quiet yet beautiful sanctuary for songbirds and butterflies close to Uptown. With stunning views back toward the Chicago skyline, Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary is a renowned area of natural beauty in Uptown that’s popular with couples and families.
