The Chicago city beachbreaks are best with spring N/NE winds and all the Illinois breaks from Chicago up to Zion will work on a NW wind. Grand Haven is surf central in Michigan, and the South Pier handles the bigger SW to NW windchop, plus there's easy access from the end of the pier and more jetty breaks to the south.
