The Whistler

Spring is here in Chicago and things are warming up in the Windy City. Warmer temperatures means that there's even more to do in the city, as markets open their doors and song and dance fill the air (no, really!). Most of the options in our list are free things to do in Chicago this month, with a few that will run you less than $10.

Here are 12 free things to do in April that shouldn't be missed.

Macy's Flower Show
Every spring, Macy's on State Street bursts and blooms with the spirit of the season. During the annual Macy's Flower Show, expert florists adorn the entire store with flowers from around the world - from Palace Roses to Hinoki Cypresses. A wonderful array of free workshops and related events rounds out the flowery fun. This year's show, Secret Garden, will usher in spring with a lovely in-store garden filled with secrets and surprises on Sunday, March 23 - Sunday, April 6.
