Here at Choose Chicago, we believe one of the best ways to jumpstart a truly epic experience in Chicago is to get ideas from the people who know the city best. Our locals, some of the greatest ambassadors of Chicago you can find, are invaluable resources for discovering the greatest things to see and do in the city.
Summer in Chicago - ain't nothing like it. There's no better reward for sticking it out through our cold temps in the winter than the vibrant, electric energy you'll find from Memorial Day to Labor Day. If you're looking for cool things to do, our locals have plenty of ideas.
