#SummerTimeChi

The weather is finally breaking! We have more days with sunshine, than those without. You know what that means? #SummerTimeChi is right around the corner. Regardless of what anyone says about Chicago, it’s beauty especially in the summer is simply unmatched. My personal favorite things to do in Chicago for the summer include rooftop bars, day parties, and any thing else that let’s me soak up the sun and enjoy what the city has to offer. Below are some cool things you, friends, and family, can do anytime throughout the season, that are mostly absolutely…FREE! So get out there, be safe, and enjoy!

Walk the Lakefront

Take a run, bike, roller blade, or stroll along the lakefront. You can even stop have a sit and have a picnic and enjoy the breeze and sunshine!

Maggie Daley Park
