Chicago Tours, Shopping and Attractions

What to See & Do in Chicago

When it comes to deciding on a to-do list, Chicago-ans have it rough. There’s the Lake and all the beach options, sports events, a theater district that includes many a Broadway and local premiere, and enough museums to keep you exhibit-bound for a week. And, that’s not even counting all the new exhibits that have opened recently, or the ongoing festivals and openings that threaten to occupy every weekend of the year. A personal favorite—the new modern wing of the Art Institute (for the art and for the view).
