What are the best activities to do in Chicago?

I grew up in Milwaukee, but I’ve never made the trip down to Chicago. The Bucks are playing the Bulls, so I thought I’d go to the Windy City for a few days. What are some of the best things to do in Chicago?

Bucks-Bulls is a great rivalry in the NBA and definitely makes your first trip to Illinois worth the effort. As the country’s third-largest city, Chicago has a little something for everyone. So even if you feel almost insignificant among the hustle and bustle of the city, spread your wings and explore for some unique experiences. Here are some of the best things to do in Chicago:
  • Take a tour or go to a game at Wrigley Field. Built in 1917, Wrigley is the second-oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball, offering an experience only rivaled by Fenway Park in Boston.
  • See the Crown Fountain. Two twin towers with built-in video screens have strategically placed water spouts that make it appear as though the face projected is spitting water on you. It’s weird, but it’s awesome.
  • Eat a Chicago dog. Purists will tell you that there’s only one way to eat one of these. Put a red hot (a Chicago hot dog) on a steamed bun and top it with yellow mustard, onions, two sport peppers, celery salt, two tomato wedges, and spicy giardiniera relish. Don’t stray from the formula lest you be ostracized.
Chicago is decidedly more expensive than Milwaukee. So if you want to pinch a few pennies before your trip, use the Jerry app to compare car insurance rates in less than a minute.
