Lake Shore Drive

Lake Shore Drive (colloquially referred to as LSD or the Outer Drive or The Drive) is a mostly freeway-standard expressway running parallel with and alongside the shoreline of Lake Michigan through Chicago, Illinois, USA. Except for the portion north of Foster Avenue (5200 North), Lake Shore Drive is designated as part of U.S. Highway 41.

The downtown part originally opened as Leif Ericson Drive in 1937, named for Norse explorer Leif Ericson. The roadway was also called Field Boulevard; it was renamed Lake Shore Drive in 1946.

Famous quotes containing the words drive, lake and/or shore:

    For one heat, all know, doth drive out another, One passion doth expel another still.
    George Chapman (c. 1559–1634)

    They who know of no purer sources of truth, who have traced up its stream no higher, stand, and wisely stand, by the Bible and the Constitution, and drink at it there with reverence and humility; but they who behold where it comes trickling into this lake or that pool, gird up their loins once more, and continue their pilgrimage toward its fountain-head.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The shore is composed of a belt of smooth rounded white stones like paving-stones, excepting one or two short sand beaches, and is so steep that in many places a single leap will carry you into water over your head; and were it not for its remarkable transparency, that would be the last to be seen of its bottom till it rose on the opposite side. Some think it is bottomless.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
