Motorcycle From Evanston to Lake Bluff

Follow the Shore of Lake Michigan this Summer

Motorcycle ride through Illinois

Enjoy Your Motorcycle Tour of Illinois

If you’ve only got the morning or the afternoon to spare, try this quick ride from Evanston to Lake Bluff in northern Illinois. Hugging the western shore of Lake Michigan, this 22-mile ride follows North Sheridan Road all the way up to the lake.

Stop for lunch – and some summer fun – at Sunrise Park on the shore of Lake Bluff. Open daily until mid-August, Sunrise Beach welcomes swimming and sailing, as well as picnic lunches and strolls along the shore. Lifeguards are on duty from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays, and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends – although swimming is not allowed when lifeguards are not available.

Take advantage of the many beach shelters at Sunrise Park, complete with fireplaces and tables, or simply stretch the legs a bit before mounting up and heading back to Evanston.

Once you’re back in town, check out the Best Western hotel in Evanston – just 20 miles north of Chicago – where you can rest up for another day on Illinois’ many roadways. The Land of Lincoln is home to a number of great motorcycle trails, so feel free to blaze down as many as you can this summer in Illinois.
