Chicago Summer Bucket List

With all of our summer traveling, we usually miss out on a lot of summer activities here in the city. This year, and with our new buddy in tow, we wanted to make the most of what the city has to offer during the warm months. While the winters here can be brutal, the summers are that much more amazing. The city is alive with activity as residents and tourists alike swarm the attractions, restaurants and city streets. I had quite a long list of things to show Charlotte this summer, and we pretty much did it all — including some things that aren’t pictured like Blues Fest, shopping the Mag Mile and street festivals!
