Chicago is one of the largest cities in the United States. It can be pretty intimidating to someone from out of town. I promise you, it’s not as intimidating as it seems. Here are the top five things to do in Chicago this summer.

  1. See a game at Wrigley Field

Watching a Cubs game is one of my favorite things to do during the summer. While sitting back and watching the Cubs, you get to be in one of the most well known parks in the country. There’s nothing better than sitting in the stands, eating a Wrigley hot dog and watching the Cubs bring home another win.

  1. Navy Pier

One of the most well known things to do in Chicago is visit Navy Pier. Take a ride on the Ferris wheel, play some mini golf, or ride on the swings. There are so many things to do on the pier. If you start to get hot in the summer sun no worries! Cool off while watching a movie in the IMAX theater located right on the pier.

  1. Lincoln Park Zoo

Lincoln Park Zoo is a zoo with 1,100 animals. Founded in 1868, it is one of the oldest zoos in the states. It is a beautiful 35 acres. Walk around with your friends and see all of your favorite animals.

  1. Millennium Park

Walk around one of the most beautiful parks in the city. It is home to the famous Cloud Gate, more commonly known as the Bean. Not only can you walk around but you can even watch movies on the lawn of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion.

  1. Food Tour

One of the best things about Chicago is our food. Chicago is known for deep dish Pizza and our Chicago style hotdogs. It is known throughout Chicago and even outside of Chicago that the best place to get deep dish is Giordano’s Pizza. If you’re hoping for a smaller meal, head to Superdawg’s for a Chicago style hotdog. The Superdawg comes with mustard, a dill pickle, a hot pepper, and onions. No Ketchup!!
