Things to do in the summer in Chicago
We get roughly four months of real summer in Chicago, so you need to enjoy it while it lasts. It doesn't matter if you're a festival freak who needs to attend Lollapalooza or the type of person who would rather sip cocktails on a quiet patio—summer in the city is made for people of every stripe. Just make sure you pack in as many days in the park, afternoons on the beach and evenings at a free concert as possible, because fall will be here before you know it. We rounded up our favorite things to do this season in Chicago—take a look.
