Best of Chicago
Chicago is an amazing place to live, but like anywhere, it is easy to get so caught up in day-to-day life that you forget to take advantage of where you live. We have compiled a list of six great and simple joys of Chicago, so you can take a little time for yourself and experience the best of what the city has to offer.
6 SIMPLE JOYS OF LIVING IN CHICAGO
1. TAKING A WALK ON LAKE MICHIGAN
Lake Michigan is a wonder to behold, and doing so is totally free. You can walk along the blue lake and stare across the water to experience a surprising sense of peace. Or, if you are in a hurry, you can just check it out from the window as you cruise on Lake Shore Drive.
2. CHECKING OUT THE CITY FROM A ROOFTOP BAR
There are several places where you can look out over the skyline of the city. While the cost of a drink is a small commitment, it is well worth it to stare out over the beautiful skyline – especially after dark. And you miss the tourists that keep the Skydeck Chicago packed.
3. GOING TO LINCOLN PARK ZOO
The grounds of Lincoln Park Zoo are truly special, and free to visit as well. You can check out the animals, try out one of the adults-only events once each month, or both.
4. EATING A CHICAGO DOG
There are a lot of different hot dog styles out there, but as a resident of Chicago, you know the best is still the Chicago-style. The poppy seed bun, bright green relish, tomatoes, the snap of the hot dog – there really is nothing else like it. And it’s cheap.
5. TRYING A TAMALE
If you are someone who likes to enjoy the Chicago nightlife, you should be on the lookout for the Tamale Guy before you make your way home. Carrying a classic red cooler full of hot, spicy, delicious tamales, he is worth visiting.
6. STANDING OUTSIDE WRIGLEY DURING A GAME
The roar of the crowd is spectacular. Of course, you can always go in and check out a game. But just hearing the crowd is a special experience.
