Top 10 things to do in the Chicago summer



Description:

Summer is the season when Chicago really gets to shine. Windows and sidewalks open up, the zoo animals come out in full glory, the water starts flowing at Millennium Park, and the fun really kicks in. These ten activities are some of the best possible things to- whether you're looking for an active outdoor bike/beach adventure with the kids or itching to kick back and cheer on the lovable Chicago Cubs with a hot dog and Old Style. If rain or sunburn threaten to spoil the day, looking at art, fish, or Shakespeare in wonderful air-conditioning can't be beat. Photo: Chris Brown
