South Shore Walk

Joe Steffen will lead a 2.5 hour, 4.5 mile walk through the South Shore neighborhood starting at the South Shore Cultural Center, past the beach, through the nature area, and through the Jackson Park Highlands Landmark District, following this route. We will walk even if it is raining, so bring an umbrella or poncho. Please do not bring your dog.

Directions: CTA: Take Bus 6 Jackson Park Express from downtown to 71st and South Shore Drive and walk through the gate into the South Shore Cultural Center.
Metra: Take the Metra Electric District Line to the South Shore station and follow the above directions.
Driving: Take Lake Shore Drive through Jackson Park, keep left onto Marquette Drive, which becomes South Shore Drive. At 71st St. turn left into the South Shore Cultural Center. Parking is $1.25/hour.
If you arrive after we have departed, wait for us to return to the Meetup location at about 10:40 AM.

    My husband and I attended this lovely outing this morning. We enjoyed meeting and talking with interesting folks as we strolled along. It was our first of Joe Steffen's walks. We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge and thank him for sharing his knowledge and time with us. Many thanks Joe. Well done!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
