It’s hard to believe that August is already here and that in a few short weeks children will be heading back to school, (this may be a relief to some!) Before you know it we’ll be dreaming about the heat, yearning for humidity and thinking about all the fun activities we could have done during the summer.
That’s why this month, we at Chicago Home Partner urge you to take advantage of these last remaining summer days and, “Live Chicago like a Tourist!” So grab your cameras, jump on the El and take a day to enjoy these local favorites.
Chicago Home Partner Recommends:
Located inside the Peggy Notebaert nature museum, visitors are able to view 1000’s of butterflies amongst the trees, vines and waterfalls.
Spend some time taking in a different perspective of our wonderful city – by Kayak! Different tours include fireworks, the Chicago River or sunset on Lake Michigan.
Walk past the lines for the observation deck and head up to the Signature Room on the 95th floor. Enjoy a beverage with someone special while drinking in a sunset.
From fireworks on Saturday nights to music on the water, Navy Pier is worth a trip. Take in Cirque Shanghai’s latest and ride the Ferris Wheel or Wave Swinger.
Take a winding trip through the buildings we see every day and learn the history, stories and people behind these architectural marvels that make Chicago home.
Home of the Blues, a night in Chicago just isn’t complete without taking in some of the sounds that made our city famous. There’s no better place than Buddy Guy’s.
Wether getting about the loop or relaxing on the water with some friends, Wendella boat tours will give you a whole new perspective on our city.
There’s still time left to head up to Highland Park and take in some tunes under the stars. Pack some snacks, drinks and join friends at this outdoor marvel.
