The chill of the winter has finally left The Windy City and residents are more than ready to enjoy the summer weather. Summers in Chicago are filled with a plethora of great activities and attractions, all celebrating the return of the sunshine, flowers, and outdoor culture.

If you’re looking for fun activities in the city, here are three options sure to make any summer afternoon in Chicago a memorable one:

Spend Some Time With the Animals

With the sun out in full force, the animals at the Chicago Zoological Park are ready to play! After spending the morning with some feathered and furry friends, check out the Great Bear Wilderness exhibit at the Brookfield Zoo or the popular dolphin show at The Shedd Aquarium.

Play at Navy Pier

The warmer weather means the outdoor attractions at Navy Pier are up and running! Spend the day zipping around on amusement park rides, renting bikes, playing putt-putt golf, or watching the latest blockbuster at the IMAX Theatre.

Enjoy the Green Spaces

Downtown Chicago is home to several green spaces that serve as great locales for a summer picnic. Check out Millennium Park and visit The Bean while you’re there, or visit famous Grant Park and its beautiful fountains.
