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.  

Every year, Chicago transitions to warm weather seemingly overnight, causing locals and visitors to rummage through their closets for short sleeves and open-toed footwear. As we power full steam ahead to the official start of summer, let's take a look at some of Chicagoans' favorite things to do outside.
