The summer season is ripe for arts and culture as well. Immerse yourself in the vibrant theatre scene at Steppenwolf, Goodman or Broadway in Chicago. Explore museums and galleries of every variety, like the Shedd Aquarium and esteemed Art Institute of Chicago. Take in sensational performances — from live music, comedy, dance and opera.
With the sparkling lakefront setting the scene, plan your stay around ‘can’t-miss’ events like Grant Park Music Festival in Millennium Park, Taste of Chicago and Lollapalooza in Grant Park, and the Air and Water Show on North Avenue Beach.
