Though summer is certainly Chicago's most coveted season, we only really only get about three months of picture-perfect weather every year, making it imperative to enjoy every single second of it. Whether you're geeking out over the Lollapalooza 2019 lineup or you're scoping out the best new rooftops and patios, summer in Chicago offers an endless supply of fun things to do around town. Make it easy on yourself by following our summer bucket list, which is packed with activities that are better in the sun, like exploring the city's most beautiful beaches, eating outdoors and attending as many Chicago summer festivals as humanly possible. What are you waiting for? Get out there and enjoy summer in Chicago right this second.
