Fall in Chicago is fleeting—though it's arguably the city's best season, we're lucky if we get two full months of primo autumn weather. When the rain clears from this week's forecast, you'll want to make time to head outside and take in Chicago's fall foliage peak, which is happening all around us right now. Like the season itself, these fiery colors won't last long.

Don't have time to make it to your favorite leaf-peeping spot this year? Lucky for you, Chicagoans are sharing their best fall foliage snapshots on Instagram, making it easy to traverse the city through your feed. Take a look at some of our favorite vantage points—from Lincoln Park and the Bean to the Chicago Botanic Garden.
