There are plenty of things to do in Chicago. I mean, it's Chicago, for goodness' sake! I thought it would be cool to draw up a list of things you must do in Chicago at some point in time, so why not this weekend? Here they are!
Let's just say, the only festival we have here is not just Lollapalooza. Go online, there are literally festivals all the time -- you just have to look for them!
Yes. Be a tourist for a day. If you're up for the exhilarating feeling of falling off of the Sears (yes, Sears) tower, then this is the place for you. Disclaimer: not recommended for toddlers, children, tweens/pre-teens, teens, young adults, adults, or seniors who are afraid of heights.
OK, this one might be a little more "touristy" than the Skydeck, but hey, the candied nuts are to die forrrrr. *drooling* And, there are even festivals and concerts that take place here, perfect to explore the pier at a different time of day, aside from the touristy times.
It's new, it's new! Dare we say, better than ever? You decide.
OK, I had to go on one of these for my History of Chicago class, and it is the coolest thing I have ever been on, seriously. Highly recommended on a warm, 70-degree day. Who knows? In Chicago, that could be in December.
I never realized how much fun a Segway could be until I rode one around the city. This is one of the fastest modes of transportation that you don't have to park. But remember the sunscreen -- those tan lines can get crazy!
8. Take a picture with the skyline.The best place to take a picture with the skyline is the green area by the steps of the Adler Planetarium. At night is prime because everything is all lit up. Another close second picture-taking location would be out on Navy Pier. Not as full of a skyline, but still amazing.
Every Wednesday and Saturday from May 28 to Sept. 3, 2016, Aon hosts its fireworks show. It's free and you can see it from almost anywhere you can see the lake/Navy Pier. It's amazing and totally worth it!
