Everyone likes music festivals. They’re a fun way to enjoy music, discover new artists, and meet people from all walks of life. And, lucky for you (and for us, let’s be honest, we too enjoy a good music festival every now and then), Chicago boasts a number of music festivals during the summer. From Pitchfork to the Chicago Blues Festival to Lollapalooza, there’s something for everyone. So put on some sunscreen and head outside for a fun musical ride!

Hanging out on the beach

There is nothing more fun during the summer than spending the day on the beach drinking cold beer and cocktails, sunbathing (within reason, skin cancer is real y’all), and enjoying the cool Lake Michigan water with friends and family. So head to one of the countless beaches in the city and enjoy a day of sun, fun, and water sports.

Watch a movie outdoors

Something else you can’t do during the winter (because it’s TOO COLD.) is watch a movie under the stars. From June till August, you can head to Millennium Park every Tuesday and enjoy one of their free movie screenings during the Summer Film Series.

Really, what’s not to love?

Go to a rooftop bar
