Today marks the opening of the Lake Michigan swim season. The Chicago Park District's Swim Report has all the information a would-be bather could want, including a handy link to the current weather forecast. (Incidentally, this weekend's shows partly cloudy skies, with highs in the mid- to upper-60s). And, if you're looking for suggestions on where to take a dip, New City Chicago's Dave Witter has a few ideas.
