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

    3 reviews

    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 ...

    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.

    Wrigley Field

    15.86 mi from Ravinia Park
    161 reviews

    The second-oldest major league ballpark in the US is celebrating its 100th birthday this year, so it's a great time to go cheer for the Cubs. The ballpark is easily accessible from the Red Line. Like Fenway, built two years earlier, there are many odd nooks throughout the park with limited visibility. A must-see for baseball fans.

    The views are truly great. Since I grew up in the area I love pouring over the details of the cityscape and spotting all the familiar landmarks. Great views of the lake too. Next time I go I'll try the option of going to the bar and getting a drink with the views.

    Lincoln Park Zoo

    84 reviews

    I'm not a fan of zoos. That said, if you are going to visit one, this is a relatively nice one. Conveniently located in a gorgeous park. I hate to see the animals living in captivity but this zoo is more humane than most and has a wide variety of animals.

    Probably the most famous comedy club in America. The food is terrible and the seats could be more comfortable but this is probably THE place to go for Improv.

    Big Star

    23 reviews

    My favorite is the Big Star salad, but the tacos and guac are pretty great too. Margaritas are strong. Cash only, but there's an ATM and a BofA around the corner. Good spot for a Sunday funday, dinner, drinks, enjoying the weather on a nice day....and pretty much anything else. One of my absolute favorite spots in Chicago!
