How To Handle Waiting For This Chicago Summer

Posted by Leila Zammatta on Friday, May 3rd, 2019 at 9:05am.

When it's still snowing in April and possibly even May (in fact, we just had the most snow in April that's on record, it might seem like summer will never arrive in we're come up with some ideas for you!

Explore A New Museum.  You've probably been to the big ones like the Art Institute and the Field Museum, but the city is home to a lot of smaller gems like the Children's Museum and the Mexican-American Art Museum. Here are some more recommendations from the experts at Time Out Chicago.

Go To The Garfield Park Conservatory. A lot of greenery and some tropical weather will lift your spirits - it's one of Chicago's treasures.

Try A New Restaurant - In A Different Neighborhood. If you're feeling stir crazy, why not check out a new place to eat in an area of the city you don't normally go? Bonus points if it's a different cuisine than usual. If you live downtown, getting out into the neighborhoods can be a great way to get a new perspective on the city.

Go To The Library. Chicago's Harold Washington library (pictured above) is pretty spectacular, with amazing architecture in addition to all the books and other media. 

See Some Live Music. Dancing can definitely warm you up, and we think some good tunes always lift our spirits.

Bundle Up And Go For Run...Or Walk, Or Bike Ride. It might be chilly, but if the sun is out and you're moving, you can still enjoy our parks, paths, gardens, and more.

Take A Class. There are tons of options for adult learning in Chicago, from fun things like casual cooking and painting to valuable professional skills like coding and graphic design.
