There's nothing like summertime in Chicago, and we don't necessarily wait for it to be officially summer to start enjoying the season! Chicago residents know that as soon as the snow melts and the sun comes out, we're all out and about and enjoying the warm(er) weather. So accordingly, here are eight things we're excited about this spring!

1. Opening Day! Whether you are a Cubs or White Sox fan (or just a baseball fan in general), there's nothing like the excitement of opening day at Wrigley or Sox Park. Baseball is back, and with it the many unique traditions.

Getting an amazing education is one of the most important endeavors that anyone can embark upon, and we're proud to say that Chicago is one of the best places in the world to study. Whether you are interested in a Bachelor's, a masters, a PhD, medical school, law school, or studying the fine arts, Chicago could be the place for you - or your kid!
