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
