They will be open through Labor Day on Sept. 4.
There are 26 miles of lakefront to enjoy in the city, and this year more than 80 vendors will offer concessions.
The Chicago Park District will deploy beach safety ambassadors designed to help keep the beaches safe and assist beachgoers as needed.
If the red flag is up, that means there should be no swimming due to dangerous conditions.
