Don’t let the nickname deter you: The Windy City is a lovely destination to visit with family. Take a river cruise, view the city from the Willis Tower Skydeck Chicago, let the kids run free at Navy Pier and, at the end of the day, treat the family to some classic deep-dish pizza. Other great family-friendly activities include The Lincoln Park Zoo and Shedd Aquarium.

Getting to know a city is best done on foot. Chicago is no different. But this city is vast and to traverse as much of it as possible you will need to travel in numbers. This is where the Chicago Walking Meetup comes in.

 

This Meetup has been in existence since January 2016. It convenes once a month at an appointed time and street. The purpose is not just to walk across Chicago, but to celebrate it. The mission of the Meetup says it is designed to celebrate the creation and meaningful events of each street. In order to do this properly, the length of the entire street needs to be walked. People are encouraged to stay for the entirety, but if you need to leave at some point, you should. Don’t let limited time discourage you from experiencing the city.

 

These walks are not silent affairs. The history of the street and the narrative of its buildings, past and ruins are woven together through the walk. Stops are made along the way and streets that have already been walked include Belmont, Lincoln, King Drive and Western. The lengths of these streets range from 7 to 24 miles

Hari Mari Beachside Flip Flops

No matter how well you care for your flip flops, every summer it seems like the pair from last year disappeared into the ether, leaving you flummoxed and searching for a new pair as you depart for the beach.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
