One of the most aggravating parts of visiting a city is finding activities. Here are some squeaky-clean family fun ideas for your next road trip. My college buddy over at Done Just Right, Inc. gave me these recommendations when visiting the Chicago area.
Enjoy a Free Tour
The only thing better than seeing a city like a local is with one. Make it free of charge, and what’s not to love?
Volunteer Greeters assist visitors in making the most of their visit. Take one of their tours or guide yourself through many neighborhoods.
The Chicago Park District
Those who can’t make a decision may want to let someone else try. With more than 500 unique parks to visit, there’s plenty to explore.
Younger children can find plenty of playgrounds, and adults will love the many historical sites. Whatever your interests, the Windy City has something for everyone to enjoy.
Wineries, Breweries, Restaurants, and More
The Chicago Riverwalk has food and beverages available for every flavor. And who doesn’t love a fresh local beer on a summer patio?
You can also work off lunch with kayak rentals and walking throughout the district. Find cafes, restaurants, and live entertainment along the Chicago River.
Chicago River and Lake Michigan Boat Cruises
Sometimes, changing your perspective becomes the only path to seeing everything. What better way to the city than from a boat?
You can enjoy river and lake cruises along the Chicago River and Lake Michigan, respectively. They even offer dining inside or on top of their boats for memorable sunset meals.
