7 Ways to Enjoy Chicago This Spring

  |     |   Around Town

Red PandaThe Montrose Apartments in Chicago, Illinois, offer easy proximity to the best of the "Windy City." As the blustery days of winter pass, spring days arrive and it’s one of the best seasons to enjoy the city. 

1. Visit Lincoln Park Zoo

A balmy spring day is perfect for a visit to the 35-acre Lincoln Park Zoo. Less than five miles south of The Montrose, the Zoo still offers free admission and is just as magical as remembered from childhood. 

2. Challenger Playlot Park

When you enjoy living at our pet-friendly apartments in Chicago, it’s great to have a city dog park within walking distance. The Challenger Playlot Park spans almost an acre and is a fun place to hang out with your canine companion on a spring afternoon.

3. Rainy Day? Visit the Chicago History Museum

Spring showers can fall in the city, but a rainy day is perfect for the Chicago History Museum on North Clark Street. From the city’s earliest days to its modern history, explore the museum and get to know your city better. 

4. Shop for Spring Flowers

Nothing says spring like a bouquet of fresh blooms displayed in your home. Chicago offers an array of shopping opportunities, and there is no shortage of florists. From boutiques with exotic varieties to specialty florists and family-owned shops that have served the city since the 1930s, Chicago has it all. 

5. Park Hop

The Chicago Park District manages more than 500 parks and spring is the time to explore these green spaces. Each offers Chicago residents a place for play, picnics, exercise, and relaxation. Some such as Millennium Park are contemporary, while others such as Garfield Park are an oasis for gardens, ball fields, and scenic paths ideal for walking, jogging, and biking. 

6. Dine Outdoors

Spring allows residents to indulge balcony dining at our apartments in Chicago. It also makes it easy to dine outdoors at one of the city’s many outstanding restaurants. Choose from neighborhood restaurants with patio dining for a romantic dinner or one of the many cafes for weekend brunch.

7. Enjoy a Festival

Chicagoans love a good celebration and spring in the city means festivals. Check out the Chicago Festival and Event Guide for the best of spring, including events showcasing movies, music, food, and the arts.
