Family Activities in Chicago

There's no doubt that Chicago is a mecca for family fun. With its great parks, museums, restaurants and stores catering to youngsters' every whim and whimsy all over the city, there's so much to do and see that you'll need multiple return trips to fit it all in! 

 

Here's a fun-filled itinerary jam-packed with activities to get you started on the right foot in the Windy City.

Yours to Explore

Unlimited family fun awaits! Make memories that will last a lifetime with activities that are perfect for all ages.

Day 1

Afternoon

You've  just arrived and you’re itching to go walk around town? Visit Mario Batali’s new Italian restaurant and marketplace concept, Eataly. You can grab an afternoon treat at the Nutella or Gelato bar for the kids and a glass of wine for the adults – what could be better. You could also have a bite to eat at one of the other twenty-three eateries inside this Italian oasis! A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

 

Or...

If the kids have been stuck in trains, planes, or automobiles all day, let them run around downtown at Chicago’s famous Navy Pier. The kids can ride the Ferris Wheel, enjoy some Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, or check out the Children’s Museum with fun exhibits included Forts, (the ultimate fort-building experience) or Bubbles (a full-blown bubble extravaganza).

 

Evening

Is the family full of sports fanatics? If so, visit the Harry Caray’s 7th Inning Stretch and Sports Museum for dinner and interactive fun. It’s located on the 7th floor of Water Tower Place with stunning city views - also in the same building as the Ritz Carlton – how convenient!

Day 2

Morning
Get a jump start on the day and head to the Doughnut Vault Get there early! Doughnuts are amazing and will go fast!

 

OR...
If you not quite in the mood for a sugar buzz all morning, head to Yolk, pancakes, eggs, and waffles galore.

 

Afternoon
To work off your big breakfast, head right down the street to a popular local tour company Bobby’s Bike Hike. They have bikes rentals for children of all ages and if you are looking for something more guided, they have various biking tours to choose from.

 

OR...
See some of Chicago’s wildlife at the Lincoln Park Zoo. Free and open every day of the year, Lincoln Park Zoo has something for everyone. If all the romping around with the animals leaves you hungry, stop by R. J. Grunts for some lunch or a snack.

 

OR...

Be crazy and adventurous and take outside trampoline or trapeze classes at Belmont Harbor. . You can enjoy flying through the air while getting great views of the Chicago skyline & Lake Michigan. Both beginner and advanced level classes are offered in a variety of aerial arts, including trampoline, tightwire, aerial silks, & of course the Flying Trapeze.

 

Evening

Before heading out to dinner, try a truly unique experience Trapped In A Room With A Zombie. You will have to use teamwork to overcome being eaten by a zombie who every five minutes is released one foot further into the room. Follow this up with Chicago’s favorite food – PIZZA! Popular spots include Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, Giordano’s Pizza and The Original Gino’s East of Chicago.

 

OR...

Surprise the kids with a thrilling ride on the Seadog Cruises at the Navy Pier great options for dinner are Belly Q in the west loop or Mike Ditka’s near the Ritz Carlton and another great option for ribs is Twin Anchors in Old Town.

 

OR...

Head down to Lakeview and see a combination of music, technology, and comedy at the Blue Man Group, show times are at 4:00 pm or 7:00 pm. Nearby restaurants that are great for an after-show meal include:  Mia Francesca, for delicious Italian cuisine, Jack’s on Halstead, for some great American fare, or Cesar’s, for tasty chips and salsa.

Day 3

Morning
Keep it easy before you have to head back home. Enjoy breakfast that’s just a hop and a skip down the street at Tempo Café where you can sit outside. Beware... their portions will keep you full all day!

 

Before you go,  take your pick of last minute shopping or a bike ride on lake shore drive to take in our magnificent Lake Michigan.
