Chicago's Oak Street Beach. This golden sweep of sand on the shore of Lake Michigan, set against the iconic backdrop of Chicago's mighty skyline, is a delightful surprise.

The beach arrived by accident, when a shipping pier that had been built on the Chicago River caused silt to build up and sand to wash to the north end of the Streeterville district.
