Northwestern students can often be found skateboarding around the Lakefill — at least before Evanston is covered in snow. The gravel road along the water is perfect for a nice ride, and the concrete bridge that lies between Lake Michigan and the rest of the campus is a hot spot. Plus, skaters at the Lakefill get a front row seat of the Chicago skyline and benches to use for tricks.
