EDGEWATER — Dotted with lush gardens, historic buildings, new businesses and a front row seat to Lake Michigan, Edgewater is a sightseer's dream.

This summer's Go Edgewater biking and walking tours seek to put a spotlight on some of those assets, like the famous pink Edgewater Beach Apartments, the sites of Edgewater's early farm days, a Foster Beach full moon jam, blooming gardens, walls of public art and more.

The free tours began three years ago and are now a collaboration between several community groups, including the Edgewater Historical Society and Edgewater Environmental Sustainability Project. 

Groups meet at 5:45 p.m. at the Thorndale "L" station and the tours start at 6 p.m.
