Professional picnickers flock here every summer to hear from some of the best bands like the Beach Boys, Art Garfunkel, and Tony Bennett. If you get a lawn ticket, come early enough to snag a good spot by the pavilion and just accept that you will be outdone in picnic style by your neighbors. This is very accessible by the Metra train, which is highly recommended should you be drinking wine.

Summer concerts at Ravinia are one of the best nights you can have in Chicagoland. A large spread out grassy area can hold several thousands of people with lawn chairs, and baskets full of wine and food grouped together as if they were gathering for a picnic. The best part is you can enjoy your time listening to great artists known far and wide.

The locale for the historic Ravinia Festival concert series (the oldest outdoor concert in the States), and an excellent place to while away a long summer evening, with a soundtrack by artists as diverse as Melissa Etheridge, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Come here on a Chicago summer night. Pack a picnic, bring your own drinks, and get here early. Some locals are intense about getting there right early (like 3 or 4 hours) and then stake claim to their piece of lawn with blankets. Ticket prices on lawn seats are affordable and you can even rent chairs and tables so you aren't lugging things on the train. A delightful adventure in Chicago.
