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 ...

    Ravinia Festival

    0.11 mi from Ravinia Park
    3 reviews

    This outdoor music festival is spectacular. Check the performance schedule before you visit but, regardless of who is playing, this is a wonderful spot to take a picnic basket and enjoy a relaxed evening. Parking is horrendous. Take the Metra if you can.

    The Martin Theatre at Ravinia

    1 review

    Beautiful outdoor concert grounds. Go early with chairs, and you can also bring in all your own food and drinks. You can pay extra to sit in the theater, or just sit on the grass in between the sculptures and dance barefoot in the grass.

    A cozy and wonderfully eclectic tea shop by Smashing Pumpkin's Billy Corgan. The selection is from Rare Tea Cellars (my fave!) and there are many vegan & gluten free snacks offered as well. The music played in the background is of course perfectly set in the space. Scrabble games are on each table, some artisanal preserves are there for purchase, ...

    Lincoln Park Zoo

    18.08 mi from Ravinia Park
    88 reviews

    This is a great place to spend an afternoon wandering around. When I've visited, it's been hit-or-miss with some of the animals. I've never, for instance, gotten a good look at any of the big jungle cats. What's great about this zoo is that it's open year round and it's always free. Come anytime--even if it's cold. You can duck ...

    I've never cheered on the Blackhawks or Bulls play here, but I have visited the United Center to see the Circus! As far a Hockey goes, my biases are clear: I grew up cheering the Minnesota North Stars, Go Sharks!, and the old Chicago Stadium (aka The Madhouse on Madison) was a much better place to watch Original 6 games. ...

    Wicker Park is where you will find a lot of young hipsters sitting in coffee shops or shopping at Farmers' Markets. It has a fun vibe, though, with plenty of bars and nightlife within reach. It's also an easy 10 minute cab ride to the main touristy areas downtown.
