Summer is a great time to be in Chicago with a multitude of options for tourists and locals alike. There’s shopping along Michigan Avenue; museums for adults and children of every age; fireworks not once, but twice a week all summer long at Navy Pier; concerts in Grant Park and Millennium Park, with most of them being free; panoramic views of the city and Lake Michigan from the top of the John Hancock Tower and the Sears…I mean, Willis Tower; winning and losing professional sports teams; and more dining options than you can shake a stick at.

If you want to hang with the locals, there’s a neighborhood festival almost every weekend through the end of September, with food vendors from local restaurants and musical performances — check the City of Chicago’s Web site for a complete list of festivals. And if you get too hot and/or need a break from the city, you can head over to one of the many beaches along Lake Michigan and cool down by taking a dip. If you need more convincing on why you should visit Chicago, check out our recent blog post that highlights summer activities in Chicago for all tastes.
