I love Chicago in the summer. It only lasts for about 10 days (give or take a month) so true Chicagoans enjoy every minute of snowless weather we can get. So whether you are there for the massive BlogHER blogging conference, or you are just in town for a visit, here’s my take on things to do in the Chicago. (Of course there are a million and one other things to do, but these are my top picks.) Also check out the Insider’s Guide for Things to Eat in Chicago.
The Lincoln Park Zoo is free to the public and open 365 days a year. It is in the shadow of skyscrapers but yet feels like a green oasis miles away. Spend some time checking out the extensive array of animals or just relax in the welcoming gardens. It is thee place to take the family in Chicago. Pack a picnic lunch (or pick up sandwiches) and have a simple, easy fun day in the city.
Hershey’s Chocolate World Chicago, 822 N. Michigan Ave
Like chocolate? Then this is the place for you. The delicious smell of it will smack you in the face as soon as you enter. Buy some souvenirs to take home (or eat on the plane) or maybe grab something from the Bake Shoppe. This is the place to find limited-editions or long-time favorites and is an experience all to it’s own, especially for the kids.
