It’s hard to believe that summer is already halfway over and winter is coming! So what have you done this summer? Me personally, I’ve been obsessing over getting and staying fit that I have barley done anything. I want to see more live music this summer, luckily there are quite a few options around the city this summer.

Here is a list I have complied of things to do this summer to make it worth remembering;

  • Head to a music festival
    With Lollapalooza, The Jazz fest and Riot Fest among others coming up, the city is sure to be rocking with great music talent. The summer music fest scene in the city is always a great time.

  • Check out a neighborhood fest
    In addition to upcoming festivals like Fiesta Del Sol & Air and Water show, there are still a few summer neighborhood festivals remaining this season such as Edgefest in Edgewater and who can forget the Wrigleyville Summer Festival. I attended the Wicker Park Festival this weekend.
    Here’s the entire list!
  • Jazzin’ at the Shedd
    Jazz. Cocktails. The lake. Fireworks. And 32,000 animals. That’s Jazzin’ at the Shedd! Jazzin’ at the Shedd is held every Wednesday night until September 9th.
    I will definitely be attending this.
    Check out the details!
  • Adler After Dark
    Enjoy some drinks under the stars at the Adler Planetarium. Exclusively for the 21+ and up crowd.

  • Go to a Chicago Landmark you’ve never been to.
    I have never been to the top of the Sears Tower (I still refuse to call it the “Wllis Tower”).  Even though I am afraid of heights I do want to go on the SkyDeck.
    I would love to have a full bird’s eye view of my favorite city.
  • Night Out In the Parks / My Chi Parks App
    If you want something a bit more low and free, definitely check out the My Chi Parks app. The app features the full schedule for Night Out in the Park. It features plays, movies, and live music in parks all over the city.
    Check out the App!

It doesn’t matter what you do really just take advantage of as many activities as you can and enjoy the great weather.
