Things to Do
Chicago Polar Plunge
If they did it just for kicks, we'd agree these plungers were a little crazy for wearing next to nothing and jumping into icy Lake Michigan during March's freezing temps. But they're taking a dip to raise money for the Special Olympics Chicago, too. Last...Sun March 1st 2015 - Sun March 1st 2015 FreeREAD MORE1600 N Lake Shore Dr Chicago Chicago

DO NOT MISS the Chicago Air&Water Show!
There are huge crowds on Sat. & Sun., so here's a Chicago secret: you can see almost the same show on Friday, when all the planes rehearse - but, without the 1.5M people each day on the lakefront. Take the afternoon off!
If you don't mind huge crowds, you may find yourself going BOTH days - Sat. & Sun., the event is that great!!
