I had an amazing time in Evanston and Chicago and I can’t believe my time is almost UP! But hope this list helps anyone else looking to have a good time in the Windy City and surrounding neighbourhoods!

  1. Ride on a tandem or 4-person bike
  2. Go to the Illinois State Fair in Springfield in August
  3. While in Springfield, go to Lincoln’s home and Lincoln’s Tomb
  4. Go to a Chicago Roller Derby Bout
  5. Visit the DuSable Museum of African-American History, Field Museum
  6. Watch a movie in a park e.g. Millennium Park, Hyde Park
  7. See a film at Music Box Theatre
  8. Walk around Humboldt Park or Jackson Park
  9. Visit Old World Wisconsin, have some drinks, eat some cheese
  10. Attend the Annual Chicago Jazz Festival
  11. Attend one of The Moth story slam events that happen monthly
