See a concert or music festival
With tons of live concerts and music happening year-round, summer is the best time to partake in Chicago’s diverse music scene. From Pitchfork and the Chicago Blues Festival to Square Roots Festival, there are plenty of concerts and festivals to enjoy.
…Or just a festival in general

Enjoy the lakefront
One of Chicago’s best features is its placement on Lake Michigan, providing the city and surrounding areas with miles of beautiful lakefront beaches and trails.
